In 2009, filmmaker Manthia Diawara, along with his camera, documented his conversations with Martinican philosopher, writer, and poet Édouard Glissant aboard the Queen Mary II on their transatlantic journey from Southampton, England to New York City. This intellectual voyage encapsulates Glissant’s life’s work and studies on his theory of Relation and the concept of Tout-monde, amongst several other of his philosophical suppositions.

“Every diaspora is the passage from unity to multiplicity.” Glissant believes that, “[people are] in a stage of perpetual change… You can change, you can be without the Other, you can exchange with the Other while being yourself…” That is, for him, understanding and tracing genealogical roots as far back as one can is of less importance than understanding and discovering the bonds that unite all of humankind as one. Glissant asserts that people’s physical, cultural, and geographical differences should not separate and divide them, rather those “essential qualities” should be the factors that link the world together. The ability to accept and become accustomed to each other’s “essential qualities,” without having to alter our own, in order to create a more mutual and integrated world is at the forefront of this documentary.
