Mensagem do Realizador Director Statement
In 2019 I went to Ethiopia in search of the script for a feature film. Coincidentally I found myself in the city of Gondar at the time that Timkat (the Baptism) was celebrated. I had a Super 8 film camera on me and ten reels of two and a half minutes each. I was not prepared for anything, certainly not prepared to shoot the Timkat. My priority was the other film. But as I got closer to the date when the celebration was going to take place, I also became aware of its importance, which was much greater than I had suspected. And when I found myself surrounded by this sea of people, I started filming. I was no longer interested in Timkat, but in those people who live it, in each of those faces the camera fleetingly frames throughout the film and that thus build the mosaic of a society, of a people with an history that is still impenetrable to me.
