59. INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL OBERHAUSEN # JURY STATEMENT PRIZE FOR THE BEST CONTRIBUTION TO THE NRW COMPETITION
Memories do not follow a chronological order – nor does Britta Wandaogo’s film.
Her 12-year-old daughter Kaddi thinks about the meaning of life and the role she plays in her German and African families. The filmmaker finds material in her archive which makes long-forgotten qualities and strengths visible to Kaddi. This very personal, almost intimate dialogue between the mother’s images and the daughters’s words shows how memories can be cultivated to make the here and now more comprehensible.

“The day you don’t know where to go – remember where you came from”
A documentary road movie about the luck of being oneself.
In the cosmos of Kaddi, there are no “correct” explanations – Why, how come, how!
In her game of “What if”, she merges foreign with familiar and brings the past to the present.


Die Burkinabé sagen: „Sieh deinem Gegenüber in die Augen ohne Angst und du erkennst dich selbst“
Kaddi Malika stellt alles in Frage – ihr quirliges Selbstbewusstsein bröckelt. Sie denkt über Weltuntergänge und ein Leben im Himmel mit Kinos und Shopping Malls nach. In ihrem Gedankenspiel “Was wäre wenn” vermengt sie Fremdes mit Vertrautem und macht die Vergangenheit zur Gegenwart. Ein Wirrwarr mit sich selbst, in dem es scheinbar wenig Halt gibt.


Le jour où vous ne saurez plus où aller, souvenez-vous d’où vous venez.» Dans le monde de Kaddi, il n’existe pas de «bonne» explication à quoi que ce soit. Dans son «jeu d’esprit», elle mêle l’étranger au familier et ravive le passé dans le présent. Un road movie documentaire sur la chance d’être soi-même.


Cocodrilos sin montura
Cocodrilos sin Sillas Sinopsis: Una road movie documental sobre la suerte de ser uno mismo. En el cosmos de Kaddi, no hay explicaciones “correctas”. En su juego de “¿ Qué pasaría si …?”, se fusiona con el familiar extranjero y trae el pasado al presente.
