A visual study on Eritrea´s written language, Tigrinya and the Geez alphabet. The film seeks to investigate how to interpret the history of a young nation, Eritrea´s 30 year freedom struggle and its language Tigrinya as an online document. By using several quotations written digitally in Tigrinya, one might associate this with Eritrean female activists in a certain era and layered with a viral digital landscape, the film is a visual study of the written language and the Geez alphabet. As the written language as well as the oral, plays a central role in Eritrea’s history and culture the digital examination may introduce a transformation linked to current time of the country’s history but may also introduce a futuristic “post human“ time and concept.
