eKhaya Revisited, Land of Shadows, is a film about my return visit to South Africa after seven years of exile in France. Several years of banishment had intensified my desire to return, and my imagination was most often captured by the moments of recognition and surprise given rise to by this visit. Shot entirely handheld, the aim was to establish a first person rapport between my family, unknown neighboring communities, the environment and myself. Camera in hand, I left in search of my souvenirs, real or invented by absence. I found my parents six years older, my family and the landscapes that shaped my childhood. I also discovered people and places I had imagined from the echoes brought to me by newspapers, postcards, books and words.
