Self-Portrait, Newsreel and Family Holiday in Leopoldville and Kinshasa (version II)
2020, HD File, 16:9, 6 minutes and 56 seconds, colour, sound
First exhibited at CAPC, Coimbra, 2020
Manipulated found footage of seemingly Portuguese settlers from Angola, holidaying in what seems colonial and post-colonial Congo, is framed by the contorts of a deformed face and paired with found sound dated from 1969, from the first newsreel made in the front of combat in the colonial war in Portuguese Guinea Bissau.
