SADDIE CHOUA (BELGIUM / MAROCCO, 1972)
The Chouas # Episode 5 Am I The Only One Who Is Like Me?
Saddie Choua weaves new links between image and fragments of sound from pop culture, creating an imaginary pseudo-realistic world with her personal archives.
Am I The Only One Who Is Like Me? is the fifth episode of the serial “Les Chouas” in which the artist films her own family. Her Belgian grandfather, who worked in a garage for fifty years, embodies the autobiographical plot of the story, which she links to Toni Morison’s book, The bluest Eye.
