In Senegal, the name of Omar Blondin Diop is associated with an unpunished state crime. In France, he has mostly gone down in history as a Marxist activist featuring in “La Chinoise”, a fiction of political anticipation by Jean-Luc Godard. Today in Dakar, his brothers and friends remember him while the local youth play their own fate under the imperfect present of China-Africa.
About the director
Was born in Baltimore, USA, in 1971, and lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. His artistic and filmic work are woven from a constellation of figures, gestures, and signs that maintain a polemical and sensible relation to the writing of history and the westernization of imaginaries. He decenters and multiplies gazes and perspectives to explore the variety of ways in which colonial modernity has impacted the fabric of contemporary subjectivities. Both in his work as an artist and filmmaker, he likes to use procedures of collaboration that undermine the authority of the author and emphasize the intelligence of collectives.
