Sol in the Dark

Sol in the Dark
dir. Mawena Yehouessi/France/2021/51 min.
Kinoteka, sala 2

As an epicene character referring as much to BIPOC youth living in the French outskirts since the 1990's, to Southeast Asian seamen and soldiers enrolled on European ships between the 16th and 20th century, or even to Sun Ra & John Coney’s Space is the Place (1974)...: "Lascar" stands as an avatar for fugitive identities in a post-Internet world, as the symbol/symptom of a multiplicity of voices, struggles, stories, archives and fictions as (im)possible forms of past, contemporary and future resistance and liberation.
