The whole area of Kapanga is mostly roadless and disconnected from the communication network of the country. The area, also due to the presence of the Lulua River, is very rich in forests and fields where it is cultivated cassava. To walk in these areas is particularly difficult and dangerous.

mAma - 9 Moon
9 Moons is a project about one of the side effects of sexual assault on women in Africa: to be the mother of a child born from rape, unwanted but accepted by the tribal society in which they live.
A "Nobody's Child" like most of the children that feed a community without men but full of women, more and more often considered at the mercy of everyone to mantain a socio-cultural harmony in the village.
9 Moons focuses on the "silence", on the "absence", on the psicological presence of the male maker. He's a bit player, not an actor; he's hidden in the background, never present and never responsible.
And on the women, the daughters of "nine moons", with the sole task of giving life to an Individual who is going to fill up the collection of Men, already full to the brim.
