Mariama and Damouré find themselves in Venice, where they look for a relic or fetish that has been lost here a long time ago, like in one of Gentile Bellini’s famous paintings. Mariama also shows her cousin a workshop where gondolas are made, and they talk about the strange Venetians who live on the water.

This little play was made in Venice, when Jean Rouch and several friends were there to present the film Falaw (dir. Mariama Hima). In it, Rouch returns to the Dogon people and their god of thunder. “Film should be an unsettling object that we send into orbit.” J. Rouch
