Watamula (2020) , 26 minutes

Nominated for Gouden Kalf Best Short Film 2020

Watamula is a place where Curaçao breathes. It is also the destination of René, who emerges from a river and staggeringly continues his journey across the island. He comes across sharp thorns and sweet rose petals, meets with rejection and comfort, clutching the amulet he was given at birth. 

Visual artist and filmmaker Kevin Osepa, for whom the identity of young Afro-Caribbeans is an important subject, moulds this trip into a magical-realistic panorama bringing together landscape and fate, spirituality, sensuality and machismo.
