Walled Unwalled,
Lawrence Abu Hamdan (2018, Duitsland, 20’59”)

Taal: Engels


Curator Aude Mgba about Walled Unwalled:

“Can we see what we do not hear? Can we listen to what we do not see? What knowledge is embedded in the invisible? The collected narratives and testimonies that are part of the video question the efficiency that surrounds the idea of a wall in our life as a barrier between bodies while showing its power as an element of narration even when one can not have the possibility of seeing. The power of the sonic found within these cases reveals the blurry limit between the outside and the inside, the private and the public and how they can reflect each other. It also proves that the desire to prevent the flow of information through radical structures is utopian given the progress of technological research.”

Taal: Spaans met Engelse ondertitels

“I think you can watch the film a few times, and come to different conclusions each time. The journey also becomes part metaphorical, part reality, and part surreal. But it is a quest for some kind of meaning, some purpose, for signs of beauty and life, and how carefully we need to train our eyes to seek it out, or locate it in the ruins of where it once resided.”

No False Echoes, Wendelien van Oldenborgh (2008, Nederland)

Taal: Nederlands met Engelse ondertitels


Curator Aude Mgba about No False Echoes:

“The film presents a time travel between the colonial past and the contemporary context that shows how issues around the emancipation of the voices of people from former colonies are still controlled and are suffocating in The Netherlands and in Indonesia. Technological advances of the media of communication can justify the non-ending presence of certain colonial empires on colonized territories. While reaching the moments of decolonization after the Second World War, many of the colonial empires installed radio broadcasting where people from the colonised territories were also hired. This was a way of strengthening the power of the colonial empires. Radios were promoting the freedom of speech but were also surveillance material of speech where any political propaganda was forbidden but any content for the development and popularization of “modernity” was welcomed, a process of “hollandisation”.”
