KENZA NAVIGATES HER WAY BETWEEN TRADITION, NATURE SPIRITUALITY AND MODERNITY

“The wind is always with me”. It is a blus­te­ry world in which Kenza lives on the small Caribbean Island of Curaçao. The 11-year-old mis­ses her dead mother. While grand­pa Weljo tells her about the world of spi­rits who influ­ence ever­ything with their magic, father Ouira is very strict. How won­der­ful would it be if Kenza could use magic to have her mother around her again – but is the­re any truth to grandpa’s mys­ti­cal sto­ries? The calm­ly depic­ted film radia­tes the power of magi­cal rea­lism, immer­ses its­elf into the visi­ble and invi­si­ble, and accom­pa­nies the girl on her path bet­ween tra­di­ti­on and future.
