Belén, wise immortal warrior of daily battles, queen of Quitiplá, of bamboo, its sounds and silences. Humble cocoa farmer and musician from a small Afro-Venezuelan town. Queen mother, common ancestor for the elongated family of the african Diaspora, its historical struggles and the ringing of its drums. Inspiration, spirit, resonant: Belen. An unusual portrait that gives space to evocation and representation of memory. A journey towards the reminiscences of his life (and death) captured in more tan 100 hours of found footage, and evoked in the mirror gestures of multiple points of view. A path towards the understanding of the power of music, of humble and authentic actions, for social transformation.
