  • There is this hill in Sambizanga, where children play. They climb and slide. They climb again, and again slide down laughing. This is a hill erected by games and tricks.

    It's the life allegory their parents live everyday. Trying to climb the mountain of abundance and it slips, they get up and climb a bit more and slip again…

    The kids will grow up and the mountain will be much bigger too. Climbing it, isn´t going to be easy for them. School and health have an high price. Only by climbing life's mountain they'll be able to pay for it.

    The kid's happiness is a future redemption and one the most powerful memories, while climbing the bigger mountain of life ahead.

    Alegoria das nossas vidas

    Há um monte de terra no Sambizanga onde crianças brincam. Sobem e escorregam. Sobem e descem rindo. Um monte feito de aventuras e brincadeiras.

    Este monte parece-me a alegoria da vida que os pais deles vivem. Tentando subir à montanha da abundância e escorregando, e levantando-se e subindo mais um pouco, mas depois escorregando.

    Os kandengues vão ter de subir à montanha porque a vida não vai ser fácil para eles. Escola, saúde, tudo tem um preço, que só subindo à montanha se consegue pagar.

    A alegria delas é a redenção futura e a lembrança poderosa desta montanha vai-lhes valer na montanha da vida.
