Short film inspired by the poem of Angela Figuera Aymerich. "A woman ran. She gasped and ran. She stumbled and ran. With a solid fear below the eyebrows and a child in her arms"

SHE POEMS/ ELLA POEMA is a tribute to African women through pieces inspired by women poets. The results are “dance-poem” short films, contemporary dance pieces, and a photography series with a new generation of female role models in performing arts in the African continent. Aïda Colmenero Dïaz initiated this project with the intention of building an “African poet map.” The aim is to highlight the beauty of African women and to show their work within and outside of their borders. As creators, these women live a process of empowerment and are an example for their environment. So far, the She Poems project has been produced in Senegal, Tanzania, Togo, Namibia, Kenya, Cape Verde, Ghana, Rwanda, Nigeria, Niger, South Africa, Cameroon and Mozambique.
