Crude Processions

Crude Processions juxtaposes two “movements” of people: the carnival practices in Buenos Aires and Cologne, and the forced migration of Africans across the Atlantic. It is a largely non-verbal exploration of the filmmaker’s reaction to witnessing black-facing in Germany: one of confusion, fear, anger and compassion.
