MAJJUDO (LOST MAN)

Someone who leaves the dying fire without his torchlight is a lost man. According to the filmmakers, ’Majjudo’ is ’’sensorially drifting in a French-Senegalese experience of Shadow Cinema’’. While light is mainly provided by torchlights, creating a cinema-driven shadowplay, people are dancing and playing music during the night. During the daytime, one is riding a bike. The camera travels, reminding us that cinema embodies movement. Image and sound are given the same attention in this film, the whole becoming a sensorial experience of moving light, shades, colours, nature, and music. Nightly projections of archival film material on local history are visually confronted with views of the actual landscape.
