She has no land but she keeps sheep / first Chapter
In 2017 we presented “She has no land but she keeps sheep, an introduction”, at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome. The occasion was the exhibition Sensibile Comune connected to the C17 conference one hundred years after the October Revolution. This introduction marked the beginning of a research within a material we had been filming for three years, a trace of a collective nomadism that brought us together with radical pedagogical practices, resistant communities, inadequate singularities, as well as practices of commoning and communities that are in conflict with the neoliberal world. A film between images and text, interviews and singing, in which the third feminine singular voice becomes the Unforeseen Subject, the one who asks the questions, the one who takes possession of the history of the many, of the chant and the scream, to put forth and question within the History of the winners, the question of the present that is imposed on us: of the human, animal, ecological collapse that we are living.
