La polvere della foresta


“La polvere della foresta” is a work documenting the social and cultural situation in Benin. The figure of women remains central through Hortance and her daughters. Voodoo is the framework within which the popular beliefs and social context of the place are defeated by the dreams of two girls who face their lives every day, unaware that they are the symbol of change for the entire country. They move forward, like windblown dust, they do not stop before the forest, they go beyond their limits, to conquer a better future.
