Anna Bambou tells a news item story. One night, a woman disappears from her village and the anecdote sticks in the villagers’ minds. During a short stay there, they told us about her and we decided to investigate. The non consistency of their testimonies, all about that same person was very intriguing. That is when we decided to work on her story by blending facts to our imagination. We asked  anyone who knew her to tell us about her. Little by little, story after story, we uncovered an individual with as many faces as the people who could remember her. Our work is based on memory, how fragile it can be and how descriptions and events can transform themselves through the spectrum of feelings. This is how Anna Bambou was born. From each testimony, we created a new series of images – each drawing a new vision of that woman and thus each writing the History of a Woman.
