In the presence of Djamila Grandits (curator)

Omar Blondin Diop, Senegalese activist of the left and student of philosophy is involved in the protests in France of the 60s. In Jean Luc Godard's La Chinoise, he plays the role of Mao exegete in 1967. In 1969, Omar Bondin Diop is expelled from the university and subsequently from France for subversive activities. In Dakar, he is part of a movement that criticizes neocolonial dependencies and the Francophile policies of Léopold Sédar Senghor. Diop died four years later as a political prisoner under adverse conditions in prison on Gorée.

Fragments of biography and archives of memory between Dakar, Nanterre and Beijing. Conversations with mistresses and friends, portraits of city dwellers, workers and artists as well as the voices, political struggles and visions of those who continue to live and think left-wing politics and the critique of neo-colonial dependencies in Senegal. Set pieces of cinema history, utopian interstices and artistic reappraisal. As in La Chinois, revolutionary desires and utopias in the pursuit of justice are brought into the frame and (re)staged.

A hybrid cinematic structure in layers, allows political, philosophical and ideological continuities, contradictions and ruptures to become visible between archive footage, interviews and staged scenes.

Vincent Meessen was born in Baltimore, USA, in 1971, and lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. His artistic and filmic work are woven from a constellation of figures, gestures, and signs that maintain a polemical and sensible relation to the writing of history and the westernization of imaginaries. He decenters and multiplies gazes and perspectives to explore the variety of ways in which colonial modernity has impacted the fabric of contemporary subjectivities. Both in his work as an artist and filmmaker, he likes to use procedures of collaboration that undermine the authority of the author and emphasize the intelligence of collectives. (film website)
