As Producer


BELEN knew an immortal warrior of daily battles, queen of Quitiplá, teacher of bamboo (of her sounds and silences). Humble cocoa farmer and musician from a small Afro-Venezuelan town. Queen Mother, common ancestor for the elongated family of the African Diaspora, their historical struggles and the drumming of their drums. Inspiration, spirit, resonant: Bethlehem.

An unusual portrait that gives space to the evocation and representation of memory. A journey towards the reminiscences of his life (and death) captured in more than 100 hours of footage found amateur and evoked in the mirror gestures of multiple points of view. A path towards understanding the power of music, of humble and authentic actions, for social transformation.
