The Dust of the Forest

“The Dust of the Forest” is a work documenting the social and cultural situation in Benin. The figure of women remains central through Hortance and her daughters. Voodoo is the frame within which popular beliefs and the social context of the place are defeated by the dreams of two girls who face their lives every day, unaware that they are the symbol of change for the entire country. They move forward, like windblown dust, they do not stop before the forest, they go beyond their limits, to conquer a better future.
