CCFM Facebok / Pedro Silva Pinto and Tiago Correia Paulo
Pedro Silva Pinto and Tiago Correia-Paulo are two of the four founding members of the Mozambican group ‘340 Million’ – first created in 2003 as 340 ml but renamed in 2013. Alongside their music, they developed, from 2007 onwards, the concept of “A Million Things”, an audiovisual experience whose starting point is a selection of cinematographic images from which the two musicians launch a second, musical search which culminates in a cinema-concert.
This year, on the centenary of the birth of the French ethnologist Jean Rouch, they are paying homage to him as a director, and imagining a reinterpretation of his work in Africa and Mozambique, where he was invited a few years after the proclamation of independence. At that time, Mozambique’s first president Samora Machel saw cinema as a powerful propaganda tool in the building of a new Mozambican consciousness. Present during the first years of nation-building, Rouch studied and captured these moments in a precious, quintessentially Mozambican documentary.
After a month-long residency in the Franco-Mozambican Cultural Centre, Pinto and Correia-Paulo will premiere their cine-concert during Francophonie Week, then tour ten African countries with the show.
A CCFM co-production with the support of the Institut Français.
