Édouard Glissant: one world in relation

by Manthia Diawara


Director: Manthia Diawara
Production: k’a Yéléma Productions
Year: 2010
Runtime: 50’
Colour

In 2009, Manthia Diawara, with his camera, followed Édouard Glissant on the Queen Mary II in a cross-Atlantic journey from South Hampton (UK) to Brooklyn (New York). This poetic meditation continued in Martinique, the native home of Édouard Glissant. The extraordinary voyages resulted in the production of an intellectual biography in which Glissant elaborates on his theory of Relation and the concept of "Tout-monde."Édouard Glissant was one of the most important contemporary thinkers. In the 1980s, his theories of creolization, diversity and otherness, as elaborated in the book "Le Discours Antillais" (1981), were considered as seminal texts for the emerging studies of multiculturalism, identity politics, minority literature and Black Atlanticsim. In the 1990s and 2000, he developed a theory he called "Poetique de la relation," and "Tout-Monde," where the concept of "Relation" is perceived as an autonomous entity, moving between objects and providing them with energy, poesis and difference. In his book "Philosophie de la relation", Glissant used the concept to meditate on the new meanings of globalization, chaos, violence, equality and justice.

Ao descer a escada
Há um degrau p’ra me sentar.
Não há outro degrau
Onde descansar.
Não estou lá em baixo
Nem lá em cima estou.
Estou é na escada
Onde sempre estou.

Ao subir a escada
Não estou em cima, nem em baixo.
Não estou na creche,
Nem mesmo no sopé, acho.
Ideias estranhas começam a girar
Na minha cabeça
Fora do lugar!
