Information about the artist film:

Foreword to Guns for Banta by Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc tells the story of the artist's search for the confiscated film Guns for Banta (1970) by Sarah Maldoror, a pioneering yet little known French filmmaker of Guadeloupean origin, whose films are closely linked to the liberation struggles in lusophone Africa. Abbonenc's film explores the figures of the militant, the filmmaker and the photographer, examining their respective functions in the making of a revolution.

Speaking from these various positions, the voice-over highlights the relationship between revolution and cultural production in the context of the decolonisation of Africa. Three characters that will be embodied by several voice-overs, blur and re-frame these testimonies.
