In his arresting and unforgettable fiction debut, writer-director Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese crafts a beguiling parable of displacement and resilience. In a small village nestled among the imposing mountains of land-locked Lesotho, octogenarian Mantoa prepares for her death, longing to be buried in the centuries-old cemetery with her departed family and ancestors. As she is making arrangements, she learns that the community is soon to be forcibly resettled in order to make way for a reservoir, and their entire village, history and traditions will disappear under water. Dreamlike and hypnotic, the film is an expressionistic elegy for things lost, and for memory itself.
In Southern Sotho with English subtitles. For a full list of subtitled films, please click here.
