“Gede Vizyon is an original and concise short film that deals with arbitrariness and spontaneity. It surprisingly weds its mythical quality with GoPro shooting to create funny and memorable moments.”
– Jury Horn Festival for Experimental Film, Second prize
Gede Vizyon takes the viewer on an unusual tour of the Grand Cemetery of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Something runs loose through the labyrinthine structure of the cemetery, capturing images and sounds on its way, and creating a disorienting experience. In response to this documentation, a Hougan creates poetry that becomes narration, as a Mambo sings Vodou hymns that become soundtrack.
Produced in collaboration with Steevens Simeon (Haiti), Jean-Daniel Lafontain (Haiti) and Jefferson Kielwagen (Brazil) for the 5th Ghetto Biennale in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Narrated by Jean-Daniel Lafontain, with songs by Evelyne Thelus (Haiti).
