There is

what I see,

what is shown to me,

what I can’t see,

what I don’t see…

I was invited to film a ritual. One that can be shown to foreigners, to “dried-heads” like me. A child of the tribe watchs Disney’s Fantasia on TV. He is interrupted. What the child lives when he dances? What am I able to see from what is shown to me?
