The video is based on the transposition of a bigger canvas that the artist realized in her studio.
The world that emerges from the canvas is also a world upside down where the destiny of Africa is reinvented through the roots that generate historical traumas in the recasting of religions and in the outline of an illuminated march. The forms of oppression are of a solemn nature, the protagonists of the genocides carry the bodies. The time freed from injustices creates a suspended space where the creatures leave for the final exile.
