ASSAMAN produced by Katrina Brook Flores, Michael P. Manuel, Mamadou Lamine “Tukkiman” Diao, Macca Malik, 2022, 14min. A man named Tukki meets a sky-being named Asé. Together, they become suspended in a visual and sonic examination in search of flourishing joy and self-care. What may seem a simple love story quickly expands into a kaleidoscope of introspective, interconnected and intergenerational movement and moments that holds you for 14 minutes in an Afrofuturist and Indigenous sonic vision – a hypnotic journey. Assaman means “the sky” in Wolof.
