Odyssey, dir. Sabine Groenewegen, France / Belgium / The Netherlands / Portugal 2018, 71 min., English and Dutch with English subtitles
A Q&A with Dutch artist Sabine Groenewegen accompanies the UK Premiere of her genre-defying debut feature.
Combining found archival footage, sci-fi and poetry, Odyssey interrogates the history and visual representation of European colonialism.
As two extra-terrestrial intelligences analyse visual material from the early 20th century in an effort to understand humanity, their signal is interrupted by a resistant matter which interferes with the flux of narratives they are attempting to decode. Confronting the rhetoric of colonialism and considering its impact across generations, Odyssey asks essential questions about the stories we’re told and how we might disrupt them.
