Rebirth. 2020.
4 October 2020

A short film of my grandmother Nyanya Elizabeth Sidi Kazungu’s first swim in the ocean. The silhouette; her granddaughter, taken at dawn, represents Nyanya’s younger self. There’s a video playing within her, in the position of a womb; a memory of Nyanya’s first swim in the ocean recorded by her granddaughter-in-law The audio in the background is Nyanya narrating her experience. This arrangement symbolises a rebirth, a baptism. A Matriarch reborn through the ocean.
