SUNU the movie is a fashion short film directed by Ramy Moharam Fouad with choreography by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui on the AW21 Project#9 SUNU by Jan-Jan Van Essche.
The collective idea SUNU, meaning ‘our’ in the Wolof language, summarizes the sentiment of unity, vulnerability and idiomatic expressions. A feeling of leadership towards the athmosphere and nature that surrounds us. An honest relation, a meaningful connection, which acquires to be celebrated and appreciated while on the other hand needs to be protected.
With project SUNU, Jan-Jan van Essche seeks resonance and merging associations, reaching for an all-embracing understanding.
