Dann fon my kèr

by Sophie Louÿs

REUNION, France - 2018 - 48 MINUTES


A scene, a circle, a ron ?! Anne, Carpanin, Francky and other poets follow one another. Their Creole language slams, their feet vibrate on the basaltic earth in memory of the ancestors. Oté fonnkézèr, “detak la lang, demay lo kèr?!” (Oh poet ?! unlock your tongue, untangle your heart ?!) breathes Axel. If poetry had this strange power to help heal the wounds and insults of history, if this poetry was a way of being in the world, then, on Reunion Island, it would be called “fonnkèr” (fond'cœur). The fonnkèr invites us to shift our gaze, like an intimate power that everyone carries to the bottom of their heart.
