Tramway Film Festival


Belgium, French Guiana, France | 2022 | 17’ | Polish premiere

“I close my eyes. The crowd makes me smile, breaks my body, and that’s the end”. By presenting the festive events which escorted the projection of the film “Jean Galmot aventurier” by Alain Maline, where the filmmaker’s father played a role, the images of Moune Ô reveal the survival of the colonial inheritance within a Western collective unconscious always marked of stereotypes. From little gestures of daily life, the resistance toward oppression comes in its own rhythm.
