Suffering from intense flashbacks of his traumatic migrant journey, which keep him from reconnecting with his family, friends and himself, he wonders what has become of him.

Grounded in Black Speaks Back’s collaborative ethos, this project blurs traditional roles, placing collective creation at its core. Therefore, we emphasize that Black Speaks Back is included, if not centred, in all communication about this film. Black Speaks Back is a Belgo-Dutch grassroots collective and platform for Black experimentation that was founded in 2016 in Brussels and is now based in Amsterdam. As a founding member of Black Speaks Back, Emma-Lee Amponsah has been involved in various impactful audiovisual projects exploring Blackness in Belgium and the Netherlands.
