When the Raven Stops Calling

(working title) A film in development.

A journey to Benin set in motion a number of questions that the film is trying to find answers to: what is belonging? How can one feel nostalgia for something that one hasn’t lived? How can one feel belonging in a foreign culture, but foreign in ones own country?

Though far an experiential film – intending to bring the viewer closer to lived experiences, where the camera functions as the extension of the filmmaker’s body – there’s also a personal narrative that re-connects to memories of her own family history. The film ponders our relationship to nature and the importance of synchronising with it’s intelligence to adapt to the crisis we’re in.
