Tinselwood. The Portrait of a Village in Cameroon

Premiered at the prestigious Berlin International Film Festival, in this film the video artist and filmmaker Marie Voignier makes a dreamy portrait of the inhabitants living in the vicinity of a majestic ancestral forest.

Faced with precariousness, the forest represents their main source of life but also an idea of resistance that remains with what so many years of colonization have left behind.
