Filmmaker and artist Theresa Traore Dahlberg depict themes like courage, power structures, colonialism and feminism: the complexity of being human in a post-colonial world. She explores the possibilities for alternative views based on both the composition of the group and the specific situation of the individual. She approaches the people she portrays with great respect, and her work is characterized by intimacy, humour and a strong visual storytelling.

The starting point of the films is often everyday life, situations that is given an existential dimension, to be human without being marginalized, fighting for your dreams or as a young woman coping with the patriarchal expectations.

Traore Dahlberg investigates, through installations, sculptures and video, parts of Burkina Faso's cultural history, Swedish industry and the value of work and goods that are put in relation to place, time and context.
