A Journey to the Makonde

In the 1950s, music ethnologist Margot Dias († 2001) was engaged in research in Mozambique. She produced photographic and film material during Portuguese colonial times. Decades later, anthropologist and filmmaker Catarina Alves Costa rediscovers her archive. Intrigued by Dias' work, the filmmaker takes the images back to the places where they were originally made. In Mozambique, they become the protagonists of an inward journey among the Makonde people, who gradually unpick and reflect upon the circumstances in which these archives were shot and produced. The film follows the archive's journey and documents the effort of returning a part of history to its people.
