Un imaginaire pour une mondialité à faire Un imaginaire pour une mondialité à faire.Fragments of two encounters with Patrick Chamoiseau and Edouard Glissant (2002, 32′) by Federica Bertelli (Les périphériques vous parlent) This film was made from interviews with Martinican writers Patrick Chamoiseau and Edouard Glissant. They evoke the capacity of individuals and peoples to change their imaginations in order to rebuild their relationship with the world. Exploring the notions of creolization, which Edouard Glissant defines as “crossbreeding that produces the unpredictable”, of globalism in opposition to economic globalization, or of identity-relationship versus the affirmation of root identities that generates countless conflicts throughout the world, this film proposes perspectives for a future where the poetic finds the political again, taking us out of a world frozen in its past with its identity-based withdrawals, its rejection of the other and its outdated cultural logics.
