People from the Indian Ocean

Special guest to the Vivid Sydney 2015 Festival, Christine Coulange has created this extraordinary 6’ short film, a concentrate of rare footage shot during 15 years on the Silk Road and around the Indian Ocean.

During vast explorations throughout Europe, Asia and Africa, Sisygambis has collected rituals, celebrations, religious gatherings, but also local markets trivial moments and encounters that made sense to its artistic origins.

For the first time, Sisygambis has mixed the images and sounds of these crossroads of migration, and Australia is like a symbolic point of junction.
