Ambassadörens fru
Theresa Traore Dahlberg

We find ourselves in an extravagant garden in Ouagadougou. The French Ambassador’s wife dreamt about becoming a famous opera singer. Instead, she is now using the singing as a ventilator to survive her seemingly privileged life surrounded by workers. This lm raises questions about power structures, class, intersectionality, post colonialism and feminism in a poetic, subtle and seductive way.
