A stunning, poetic essay film that invites the audience on a journey to the aftermath of South African apartheid, and acutely reveals the enduring spectre of racism. Director, writer and artist Milisuthando Bongela recalls early memories of life inside the segregated Transkei region, and the hopes and dreams of a country eager to put apartheid behind them. Combining these memories and perceptions of her country with her deeply spiritual relations with family and clan, Bongela paints a complex picture of personal and national identity. A memorable work of creative non-fiction that has been celebrated at Sundance and New Directors New Films. This screening will be followed by an in-person Q&A with director Milisuthando Bongela moderated by KUT 90.5 on-air host Miles Bloxin.
