Kantarama Gahigiri’s short film in the style of an “angry poem” is an equally abstract and forceful plea against the exploitation of Africa and an appeal to take responsibility for the effects of capitalism, colonialism and environmental destruction.
Kantarama Gahigiri has already been a guest at AFRIKAMERA in 2022 with her short film ETHEREALITY.
