Spell Reel is an archive of film and audio material from Bissau, Guinea-Bissau. On the verge of complete ruin, the footage testifies to the birth of Guinean cinema as part of the decolonizing vision of Amílcar Cabral, the liberation leader who was assassinated in 1973. In collaboration with Guinean filmmakers Sana Na N’Hada, Flora Gomes, and others, César imagines a journey where this fragile matter from the past operates as a visionary prism of shrapnel through which to look.
