ABOUT THE FILM
Zwarte Ibis portrays a young Black woman’s quest for intimacy in a world where the boundaries between the individual and the collective, the political and the personal, the past and the present, become ever blurrier. The short film is an afro-surrealistic reverie, poetically re-imagining our contemporary conceptions of relationships with the self and with imagined communities through a questioning of historically and culturally imposed views on Black people’s intimate lives in the diaspora.
Behind the film
The film is a commission of If I Can’t Dance within the frame of their Edition IX – Bodies and Technologies biennial programme (2022-23), and has been developed in partnership with CBK Zuidoost and the 2023 BijlmAIR residency programme. The project is supported by the Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.
