YOKO OSHA: VOLUME II

The second chapter of the trilogy started 14 years ago as an intimistic, performative, multilayered, sensorial, subjective selfportret of a return to the magical-realistic world of Santeria of Regla de Osha. The in secrecy practiced rich cult, that used to be forbidden by the government, has gained more and more followers from all corners of society in the past 20 years. In the continuation of the merging of different cinematic styles and its interweaving with different faces of the ceremonies and their resonance in other participatory situations.

The use of found Hi 8 footage from Benin 26 years ago and mobile phone imagery add to the complexity and visual eclecticism of the piece. The soundtrack of this instalment is made in its entirety of field-recordings from La Habana.

A whirl of unseen sonic movement to the border where black magic starts. Bridging the past with the present and the futures, the individual with the collective.
