Occident

A Short film by Ana Vaz

Produced by École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Lyon

Production year : 2014

    Synopsis

    A film-poem of an ecology of sings that speaks of a colonial history repeating itself. Subalterns become masters, antiques become reproducible dinner sets, exotic birds become luxury currency, exploration becomes extreme-sport-tourism, monuments become geo-data. A spherical voyage eastwards and westwards marking cycles of expansion in a struggle to find one’s place, one’s sitting around a table.
