A new filmwork by SUPERFLEX portraying a boatbuilder on the island of Anjouan,in the Comoro Islands. The boats are used for fishing but also to transport migrants to the neighbouring island of Mayotte,a French overseas territory and a outermost region of the EU. The island of Mayotte is just 70 kilometers away from Anjouan. 

The film intends to use the construction of the boat as a carrier of migrants on a dangerous ocean in a complex political setup as well as their symbolic meaning as a carrier of dreams of reaching a better life on the other shore.

KWASSA KWASSA is understood as “an unstable boat”. 

Filmed September 2015 in Anjouan.
