Earth Mother, Sky Father

Kordae Jatafa Henry

Jamaica/United Kingdom/United States – 2019
Video – duration 17 min

Earth Mother, Sky Father shows an alternative African future. The live action music film takes place in the year 2030 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The country no longer ships unrefined rare minerals, but keeps its wealth onshore and in the ground. The processes and infrastructure of mining have been revalued and ritualised as an important aspect of local culture. This is Africa’s future through dance – a ceremony for the God of Rare Earth.
