FEATURE FILM - DOCUMENTARY
"How does our past, and how we record it, affect our present and future?". Sankofa is a sci-fi featured film wrapped around a documentary about memory that explores ideas of how the past determines our present moment.
The story follows a woman on a mission to recover the history of the human race. Along the way she makes discoveries, including a crate of objects from earth, one of which is a documentary about the nature of memory and remembering.
As she inspects these relics she begins to question her mission.
The documentary follows different individuals and their interaction with memory and the moment - the abstract and concrete. Looking through the eyes of a photographer, child, architect, filmmaker and others - the film asks, "How does our past, and how we record it, affect our present and future?".
