Spectres of the Anthropologist
The Digital Images of a Delayed Ritual
Landslides is a cinematographic essay/poem where fictional images are created from a research about a Mauritian ritual born during the slavery period. The contemporary Mauritian dancer Jean-Renat Anamah crosses mythical territories of Sega which combine with intimate places of my own story. From the pixel of digital image and the shadow of electronic rhythm, this film exhumes in layers of landscapes the spectrum of a ritual erased by History through a personal genealogy: between hauntological memory and delayed archive.
