How do we receive a cultural heritage and how does it shape our identity?
Based on my personal ties with Basque Country, I wanted to develop a body language in dialogue with French video archives, celebrating cultural diversity and attempting to reconnect with my ancestors.
I’m interested in how the transmission of cultural heritage can build bridges between generations and prevent social isolation. In a world of dangerously growing nationalism, I’m exploring my mixed cultural background to reshape my relation to basque ethnicity.
