Detailed Information

Shot in Côte d’Ivoire in April 2018

MUANAPOTO is a music video about AZA, a young African woman who feels a bit alienated from the place and context she lives in. This translates to the fact that she’s hearing impaired. Through this energetic and uplifting film, we learn a bit more about her life and personality, while we struggle alongside her to be able to let go to the music and release her innermost beautiful pulsating being.
