Maxime Jean-Baptiste, Moune Ô (2022)

“I close my eyes. The crowd forces me to smile, breaks my body, and that’s the end.”

By presenting the festive events which accompanied the premiere of the film Jean Galmot, aventurier (1990) by Alain Maline, in which the filmmaker’s father played a role, the images of Moune Ô reveal the survival of the colonial inheritance within a western collective unconscious. From little gestures of daily life, the resistance toward oppression comes in its own rhythm.
