ASSAMAN is a cosmic twin love story with the future. A man named Tukki meets a sky-being named Asé. Together, they become suspended in a visual and sonic examination in search of flourishing joy and self-care. What may seem like a simple love story quickly expands into a kaleidoscope of introspective, interconnected and intergenerational movement and moments. ASSAMAN holds you for 14 minutes in an Afrofuturist and Indigenous sonic vision – a hypnotic journey. ASSAMAN means “the sky” in Wolof.
Theater, song, and dance–and everything in between–is the name of the game with this collection of narrative short films.
