nomad future land residency

Simon(e) Jaikiriuma Paetau


“Mojana” is an associative re-imagining of a Colombian myth and traditional song. A mermaid-monster, who is desired and punished: the man-eating, seductive Mojana. Agressions against this free and rare spirit are justified by obsessive love and desire. The film denounces the naturalized violence against this mythical female creature and reappropiates her as a symbol of trans-feminine resilience. Kinematic bodies and animal-human hybrids. An absent body, which returns into representation. A history of dissident bodies who resist dying in a necropolitical world.
