Watch Apolo Wilson’s abstract film exploring Ugandan life
‘Nsenene’ explores the partially familiar through a mixture of footage taken from a documentary that filmmaker, Apolo Wilson, shot in Uganda. Nsenene refers to Apolo’s clan – a tangible channel through which he sought to make sense of his heritage. The project is a collaborative endeavour which relies heavily on the creative soundtrack Gbeke (Emāenuel) provided. Watch Nsenene below.
