Mains Propres

Louise Botkay
2015, 8’, Chad, DV, no dialogue

Recorded at a press conference organised by Unicef in Chad, Mains Propres gives us an unnerving insight in the economy of neo colonial dependence. Although more explicitly political than her other work, Mains Propres contains a number of key elements from Botkay’s oeuvre, such as the central position of the mother figure.
