Ex-colonial Landscape with Different Filters 2019
MiniDV transferred to digital HD file, 4:3, 4minutes and 30 seconds, colour, silent
Commissioned for Subtitulizar/Subtitling, Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, Lisbon, 2019
Single shot footage of a landscape from my native island of Santo Antão in Cape Verde overlayered with different filters runs in parallel with text. The text interweaves extracts from lyrics from 1980s and 1990s Portuguese well known pop songs with extracts from speeches made by the presidents of MPLA and UNITA the two opposing factions during the Angolan civil war (1975 to 2002 with interludes).
