Produced as part of a sculpture of the same title, the film draws its imagination from an ecological disaster; contamination of soils, rivers and groundwater in Martinique and Guadeloupe by chlordecone — a pesticide used to control the banana weevil between 1972 and 1993. The title, “Assidule” is taken from a song, written for the occasion to Afro-pop music, dynamic and joyful, a nod to Caribbean cultures mixing festivity and sadness.
