How did you sleep last night?
What’s the most exciting unrealized project you have?
I badly want to shoot a feature length sequel to a docu-fiction I shot in 2020 called Ikoce Volume I. This film is about an uncanny and charismatic narrator who is searching for the meaning and form of a mysterious cultural performance speculated to have started after the second world war in Northern Uganda.
As the search unfolds, the film sonically and anecdotally questions the notions of kinship, cultural legacy and the slippery nature of memory. In this film, the cultural performance is actually never revealed. It’s more about the ride than the destination. But we do want to see the destination, right? So, the sequel, tentatively called Ikoce Volume X finally reveals the mysterious performance but in the most unexpected way!
I don’t want to spoil it, since it’s a project I hope to realise when the time and conditions feel right.
