ARTIST, ACT OF LOVE (UK Premiere)

Dir. Kuukua Eshun

Ghana. 2019. 6 mins.

English with subtitles.

This short is a visual poem, deftly written by the director, Kuukua Eshun. It celebrates what love looks like in its many forms. It asks the question, what does it mean to pledge allegiance to a nation, a person, a point in time, or the self?
