Inspired by the poem of Fina García Marruz (Cuba) CINE MUDO
“No es que le falte el sonido, es que tiene el silencio”
the sound in silent film is not missing, it has the silent.
The reality in Nigeria is with 24 hours of noise of power generation, for nigerian people this noise is the silent,for people form outside is big and disgusting noise.
also this noise remember us the old film machine.
We wanted to adapt the poem to the african and nigerian reality.
play with the silent, the noise and make a music with that.
we want to create a video poem
