Me-ba… I'm Coming: A Travelogue

"Time has its own disposition, there's no hurry, there's no rush, the day continues as always." This video travelogue incorporates black-and-white Super-8 landscapes from a bus window, panoramic self-portraits at historic sites and voiceover narration to recreate a marathon 48-hour roundtrip bus ride between Ouagadougou and Accra. The black-and-white countryside transforms from the dusty, arid Sahel of Burkina Faso to the lush, green hills and humid coast of Ghana. Meanwhile our mulatress, lesbian, narrator --white/black/boy/girl -- recounts casual meetings, conversations and coming out in Africa.
