Akarani bono awowa? (Where is the place where you see the sun rise and set?) is the Kali'na way of asking: Where are you from? Where is your home?

Artists from all over the world will be present to introduce their films and open discussion with the public is encouraged. We will have a short presentation on the people losing their homes in Afghanistan and Manuwi C Tokai will perform.
Manuwi C Tokai invited everyone to submit a one-minute video in response to the question: Akarani bono awowa? Manuwi also gave an online masterclass to help people make films. The 20 selected videos were submitted from Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Laos, Lebanon, Netherlands, Russia, Suriname, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States.

On our social feeds, we jump from happy dogs to war scenes. Both can refer to someone's home. What makes your home? How responsible do you feel to secure other people's homes? Do we still understand the writings and whispers of our environment or are there languages we need to relearn? This series of one-minute films features intimate scenes from communities around the world. Many of them bravely face various challenges to secure their homes from invasions. Some scenes allow us to be enchanted by the mystical movement of nature. You are invited to take it all in. Both true vision and sound or just sound or vision, whatever your body allows you to experience. Take this time and space to revisit memories of house and home and take a journey into a future of what home could be.
“All the places where the sun shines is our home.” What if we could really feel that every day? Would you live the same way? Would your routine be the same? Would you show the same in your social account timelines and feeds?

Manuwi C Tokai (Akarani, Suriname, 1989) is a singer, artist and human rights activist. She investigates the contemporary relevance of Indigenous knowledge and traditions. And the importance of indigenous peoples taking ownership of their own stories and histories. Singing is a form of action. Together with her aunts she stands up for the original culture of the Ka'lina Terewuyu people from the Amazon and for the stories of others that go unheard.
