Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and Danish Cultural Institute in Warsaw invite you to attend the screening of the film "Kwassa Kwassa" by the Superflex group.
"Kwassa Kwassa" is a film work by SUPERFLEX and the Vietnamese film director Tuan
Andrew Nguyen (The Propeller Group), portraying the construction of a boat on the island of Anjouan, in the Comoro archipelago between Madagascar and Mozambique. Although usually used for fishing, boats like the one built in the film are in many cases also used for transporting migrants to the neighbouring island of Mayotte, a French oversea territory and the outermost region of the EU. The islands are 70 km apart – separated by a seemingly short, but life-threatening journey that has claimed more than 10,000 lives of women, men and children.
"Kwassa Kwassa" interprets the boat as a contextual construction intended to carry migrants on a dangerous, politically complex journey.
The event is organized in cooperation with the Danish Cultural Institute in Warsaw.
