Kii Nche Ndutsa (Time and the Seashell)

Itandehui Jansen

Mexico – 2019
Video – duration 17 min

In Central America the seashell is a symbol of time. A young indigenous boy imagines his future while listening to the sounds of a seashell, while an indigenous man recalls his past listening to the same shell. The man remembers listening to birds and looking at fireflies in his childhood, but these are no longer there. This film invites us to consider the past, present and future of a changing landscape and vanishing biodiversity.
