BELÉN

Venezuela-Spain / 2016 / 95’ / DCP


Immortal humble wise noble warrior. Queen of bamboo and bridge to the forces of the African Diaspora. Inspiration. Resonating spirit: Belen.

A trip into the puzzled reminiscences of this woman's life (and death), captured through more than 100 hours of amateur found footage, and expressed through the mirrored gestures of multiple points of view. An unusual musical portrait filled with personal and collective resonant rituals; a path to understand the power of music, and modest authentic actions, for social transformation.
