Art video diary, Tanzania

July 2008

I filmed the road I had to walk along from the house to the bus-stop during my stay in Uru. It was a 45min journey on foot. Being the end of the rainy season, both on-foot and vehicle journeys were very difficult along these roads. The sound track to the film is a voice-recording of the diary I kept whilst there.
The Swahili title means "slowly" in English.
There is a Swahili saying that translates as "Slowly slowly is indeed the proper path".
