THINGS OF THE AIMLESS WANDERER

Dir. Kivu Ruhorahoza
Rwanda/2015/78mins/English/TBC
This thought provoking film takes its title from Bantu accounts of European explorers renowned for getting lost in their wanderings, in this highly creative, original and arresting work. A white man meets a black girl. Then the girl disappears. The white man tries to understand what happened to her and eventually finish a travelogue. Against a haunting score and intricate sound design, story fragments portray an African woman as an object of lust, surveillance, fascination, or violence.
