Floating in the dark

Flotter dans le noir

Vidéo HD, 6’36”

Wandering in the night, floating in the dark.

Video filmed in February 2011 in Bamako, Mali, in the district Djicoroni Para, with the broadcast of muezzin’s calls. By the lacking of public street lighting, the landscape of the street is nothing familiar to us. The whole environment has changed. Houses, stores, waste, plants, even clothes of the passengers, everything is fading in the dark. We see the lights and shadows, the images taken. The movement of light and shadow characters built an iconic sense of the territory.
