#5BOCHIZAMI is the final chapter of NA LUT@, a long-term collaborative project dedicated to producer and cultural activist Samira Pereira (1976-2021).
Pursuing a chromatic map drawn from the stages of mourning, a final attempt is made to celebrate in the void.
A cinematic space is built where blurs and distortions coexist with cemeteries and plant maternities, sound diaries of mourning and carnivals. Mobile and underground islands summon mourning, memory and the Cape Verdean language.
#5BOCHIZAMI is a travelling about the stoppage of time that is mourning. It is a travelling through individual and collective memories, real or fictional.
