“Zurura, Zurura: The Smile Blooms” is a poetic visual philosophical essay. In this film, the director Marthe Djilo Kamga revisits the issue of silenced black female body, often under the gaze of others. She comes back to the African roots, and the landscape of African culture to anchor a new gaze on the black female body. The poetic is a call to create new epistemology of how to inscribe one selves in the world around us. Zurura, Zurura, invites new generations to celebrate their blackness.
