In the absence of writing, how does a people record the crucial events of their past? In Africa, as elsewhere, memory sustains the identity of a people.
This documentary is about Luba Art and the relationship between women, art and history. Welcome to the magical world of the Lukasa, a memory board, where kings are born only after their spirits have taken possession of the body of a woman. Then, watch history come alive.
