Kigali, Rwanda.
"- Everybody talked about it at a certain point. Do I believe it really happened or that it was actually here? Hmm, I am not sure.
- So, do you think it's true?
- I can only describe it from what I've seen on television. A huge pointy element that pierced the ground. And the earth around it... tshrrgg! [makes gestures] fell everywhere. Disturbing the peace, disturbing the status quo, the way things are."

Simon Rittmeier studied visual arts and film at the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg and at Academy of Media Arts Cologne. His works, both experimental and essayistic, explore the power of moving images and their political impact. From Havana to Tel Aviv and on to Ouagadougou, his films fluctuate between documentary and fiction. Festivals and exhibitions include Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen, Visions du Réel and The Studio Museum Harlem, New York.
