Direction: Sebastian Wiedemann

Super-8, transfer DCP. B&W

The body re-exists and insists. It is never a closed envelope, but a channel of passage and trance among the most diverse spiritual dimensions (Obatala Film). Film-devotion, film-offering, film-gift. Shot in the mythical Ile-Ife, the sacred city of the Yoruba people and founded by the Orisas, this film seeks to sensory affirm the vertigo of coming into contact with Obatala, orisa creator of the world, of light. Trance of sparks of light, of bodies in spiritual connection.

Sebastian Wiedemann

After studying Visual Arts in Colombia, Sebastian Wiedemann studied Film Direction and Philosophy in Argentina, developing since then an experimental audiovisual production, where there has been a constant concern to release rhythms and durations that open new fields of perception. He currently lives in São Paulo, where he researches the intersection between experimental cinema, philosophy and anthropology.
