AN OPERA OF THE WORLD


In An Opera of the World (2017), shown at documenta 14, Manthia Diawara interweaves the African opera Bintou Were, a Sahel Opera, which premiered in Mali in 2007, with both current and historical waves of migration. The filmmaker puts the emphasis on the new cultures that have formed, and continue to be formed, through migration, including by Europeans, who are now largely closing their borders.
