Synopsis

In Senegal, the name of Omar Blondin Diop is associated with an unpunished state crime. In France, he has mostly gone down in history as a Marxist activist featuring in “La Chinoise”, a fiction of political anticipation by Jean-Luc Godard. Today in Dakar, his brothers and friends remember him while the local youth play their own fate under the imperfect present of China-Africa.

Sinopsis

U Senegalu, ime Omar Blondin Diop asocira na nekažnjeni državni zločin. U Francuskoj se spominje kao marksističi aktivista koji se pojavljuje u “La Chinoise”, fikciji političke anticipacije Jean-Luc Godarda. Danas, u Dakaru, njegova braća i prijatelji ga se prisjećaju dok istovremeno lokalna mladež kroji vlastitu sudbinu u nesavršenoj sadašnjosti Kine-Afrike.

Directors Biography

Vincent Meessen (USA, 1971) lives and works in Brussels. His artistic work is woven from a constellation of actors, gestures, and signs that maintain a polemical and sensible relation to the writing of history and the westernization of imaginaries. He decenters and multiplies gazes and perspectives to explore the variety of ways in which colonial modernity has impacted the fabric of contemporary subjectivities. With ten guest artists, Meessen represented Belgium at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015.

Biografija reditelja

Vincent Meessen (USA, 1971) živi i radi u Briselu. Njegov umjetnički rad istkan je od konstelacija glumaca, gesta i znakova koji ostvaruju polemički i senzibilan odnos prema ispisivanju historije i vesternizaciji imaginarija. Decentrira i multiplicira poglede i perspektive kako bi preispitao različite načine kroz koje kolonijalna modernost djeluje na stvaranje savremenih subjektiviteta. Sa deset gostujućih umjetnika, Meessen je predstavljao Belgiju na 56. Venecijanskom bijenalu 2015. godine.
