OUMOUN

“Dear Grandma, you’ll be surprised to hear my voice in your language...”. These are the first words in a recorded, spoken letter that was never sent, but was instead played aloud in real time by the Brussels filmmaker to her elderly grandmother in Mahdia, Tunisia. In the company of the camera, the lines easily turn into a voiceover that, as one listens and looks attentively, gradually transforms into a dialogue that spans languages, cultures and generations.

This film is a collaboration with the artist's brother El Moïz Ghammam.
