🌸2/ *Relatos de um rapariga nada pudica* documentary by Lolo Arziki.
Synopsis : Video Performance, an artistic, intimate and personal experience about being a woman, a black woman, an African woman, and the affirmation of her sexuality within the Cape Verdean cultural context. From the text ” Stories of an indecent girl ”, letters that emerge from a need for provocation, freedom and communication with her body and identity and later with the world. The video is recorded in the room of the house where I lived for six months on my return to Cape Verde. The choice of the interior has precisely to do with how the relation with that identity is allowed. I simply invite Ricardo F. Mendes (my trainee colleague at the time) to confront something we have debated several times in our conversations, ” Homosexuality seen in the African context, ” I think it was a challenge for both of us. The features were few and the intention was to have a simple image that did not turn off the audio attention. “It is my intention to shout confrontation and provoke arguments based on the root of the problem.”
Lolo Arziki is a Queer artist, a natural immigrant from Cape Verde, who resided in Portugal for 12 years and in the last 5 years she lives between Portugal and Luxembourg.
As a feminist, her work focuses on the themes of sexuality, race and gender. She also hosted Homestay documentary: a documentary about a housing tourism program on the island of Maio featuring women. Its goal stands in the economic empowerment of these women.
