Rita Maomenos - Weapons of the Weak

by Diffuse Reality Records

Extinct 02:39
Luanda Leaks 04:46


"Weapons of the weak is a mysterious tribute to fallen warriors from the future. It revolves around the idea of everyday resistance in the face of hopelessness, made by common people, using the means available to them.

'Extinct' is a blurred, obscure warning that culminates with the forecast of extinction. Despite the evident hopelessness that this warning brings, it is accompanied by an homage to those too weak to change the course of events, but that nevertheless tried. 'Picking quarrels and provoking trouble' is the crime that citizen journalist Zhang Zhan was accused of when reporting on the Wuhan outbreak. Citizen journalists were one of the sources of uncensored information during the outbreak in China. She was convicted to four years in prison, where she remains as of 2022. 'Murderous femmes' is an homage to survivors of partner violence. It reflects a profound disappointment in a system that often fails to protect women. It is inspired by the stories of women who fought back and killed their long-time abuser, with some ending in prison. 'Alexander Navalny' samples moments of the arrest of the former Russian politician who stepped into the spotlight by reporting on corruption in Russia. After a failed murder attempt during a flight, and returning to Russia, he was arrested. As of 2022, Alexander Navalny remains in prison. 'Luanda leaks' twists samples of one interview of the hacker Rui Pinto. Rui Pinto released several documents that contained evidence that Isabel dos Santos, once Africa's wealthiest woman, has profited from two decades of corruption in Angola. These documents also showed that this would not be possible without the aid of western firms and individuals. Despite being a resource-rich country, more than half of Angola's population still lives below the poverty line."
