The world slowly emerges from blackness and falls back into blackness. The wisdom of life and death – and the wisdom of the cinema: black, frame, black, frame, black, frame. Via her film director Sandra Heremans, who was born in Rwanda, establishes contact with her father, who once came to Africa as a missionary from Belgium and fell in love with her mother there. Her images are personal and tender and take time to crystallize out of the blackness of the unborn film.
