Ufuoma Essi
‘All That You Can’t Leave Behind’

13 – 27 January 2022

The Douglas Hyde is so excited to continue Alice Rekab’s multi-platform project FAMILY LINES with an online screening of Ufuoma Essi’s ‘All That You Can’t Leave Behind’ (2019).

Selected by Éireann and I, this experimental film works with appropriated video footage to explore the relationship between Black women’s collective experience with music, history, and the act of reclamation.

FAMILY LINES is a project by artist Alice Rekab in collaboration with Éireann and I, a community archive for Black migrants in Ireland, and with contributions from Holly Graham, Salma Ahmad Caller, Larry Achiampong, and Cypher Billboard, London. FAMILY LINES explores experiences of migration and survival within the family unit, and focuses on Black and Mixed-Race life in Ireland across generations.
