Guilty landscape. A carefully observed decrepit swimming pool, silently relates a myth from Africa’s traumatic history. Based on a myth about an undersea continent as told in music by the Detroit band Drexciya. The primarily visual images are related to an experimental film tradition of observation. The result is an intense look at a piece of Africa with a visible colonial past. (Filmfestival Rotterdam)

This film is part of the short film program Schwere Augen.
