Reparations is an experimental animated short film that explores the phenomenon of migration (forced and voluntary), through the fragmentation and modulation of a character: A chair that moves as a result of invisible forces. Forces that sometimes represent coloniality, in others industrialization and in the most complex, the consequences of war. The chair object incorporates a search in the middle of marginalization, adaptation and inequality, through a series of urban scenarios in which symbols of the African diaspora that survived and dispersed in the Americas are displayed. The chair embodies the result of these interactions, claiming expressions of resistance such as African percussion and the use of Quilts.
