Khoekhoegowab - English Subtitles
Same Different is a rare encounter between the Khoekhoegowab language and a still camera. The poem, written and performed by Namibian artist "Ques", together with the sounds of the bow and the forest, moves along the sun, the wind, and the spirit of the poet herself. Ques keeps us hypnotised with her spoken word while healing the deep-rooted wounds of our colonial past and present. Ques' voice is our ancestors' voice enacting pain and oppression, but also hope and wisdom.
A Namibian-Colombian collaboration shot in Germany. Ques' poetry reflects on the deep-rooted wounds of our colonial past, and what is colonialism but the violation of borders? not geopolitical borders, but the borders of the other dignity.
