The body re-exists and insists. It is never a closed envelope, but a channel of passage and trance among the most diverse spiritual dimensions (Obatala Film). Film-devotion, film-offering, film-gift. Shot in the mythical Ile-Ife, the sacred city of the Yoruba people and founded by the Orisas, this film seeks to sensory affirm the vertigo of coming into contact with Obatala.

SHELLY BELLY INNA REAL LIFE
by Cecilia Bengolea
Narrated through movement and music, the energy and expression of the dancehall scene of Kingston and Bog Walk in Jamaica is captured in all its vibrancy in Shelly Belly inna Real Life. Exploring the influences of culture and nature within and upon the Caribbean island art community, the film follows the language of dancehall from the intricate rhythms of the jungle landscapes to the choreography of the people whose passion-practice it follows. Shot by artist and choreographer Cecilia Bengolea over four years, this insider’s view grants unprecedented access to the characters whose vitality and influence have shaped a view of movement and life that reaches out from its Jamaican founders to the world beyond.
