Mónica de Miranda: Path to the Stars
Jan 2 – Apr 30, 2024
The Wexner Center for the Arts
Columbus, USA

Mónica de Miranda’s video Path to the Stars revisits the legacy of anti-colonial resistance in Angola, inviting the audience on a journey through revolutionary history and the future. The title comes from a 1953 poem by Agostinho Neto, a freedom fighter and the former president of Angola. Over the course of a single day, from sunrise to sunset, viewers follow the path of a heroine as she navigates down Angola’s Kwanza River. She confronts various avatars of her past – and of Angola’s struggle for independence from Portugal – along the way.

This languid, deeply poetic, and lyrical film complements the Wexner Center’s presentation of Sarah Maldoror: Tricontinental Cinema, on view in our galleries from February 3–April 28, 2024.
