The Village of Kenou

The village of Kenou is a portrait of a traditional village community in Benin, where the old animist vodun culture is still leading. It breathes the age-old West African animist culture in image and words and provides the viewer with an hour-long trip into another world. The translation is the result of close collaboration with the inhabitants and aims to do justice to their way of thinking, giving special attention to the proverbs that flavour the spoken word and the songs that turn it into poetry.
