Red Horizon

No Trailer

A woman stands on top of a hill in Namibe desert in Angola, looking into an extensive horizon of a vast desert, she signals the hope of crossing these borders symbolizing the repossession of the land and the regaining of a lost identity. The landscape as pathology is explored through these images; how past violence manifests in the landscape of the present, both intrinsically and symbolically. We live in a present space, but one that bears the marks of its history. As much as we occupy places, they have the capacity to pre-occupy us. The red horizon or the destiny for the liberation are like mirages on the walking performance. This woman walks alone and has to face herself alone in the name of the revolution to find out that the revolutionary quest is more a personal journey of personal transformation.
