Synopsis: NAKED SPACES – LIVING IS ROUND is about people and their living spaces in the villages of six West African countries. It is a "poem of lingering" (Nadja Rottner), which creates an increased awareness of sound, music and the noise of the surroundings and allows the audience to see and perceive the specific culture through the senses. "The non-expressive, non-melodic, non-narrative aspects require a different kind of attention from their viewers, who hear sound as sound and see the image as image," says Trihn herself in a commentary that is also narrated by two other women. This transmits different perspectives – that of the Africans, another which reflects the logic of the West, and a third which is based on personal experiences and observations.
