ABOUT THE FILM
A woman walks through the landscapes and crowds of an unnamed country carrying a heavy cross on her back. In the images, the distant voice of a child calls out to its mother, accuses her, rejects her. In his first experimental feature film, Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese mixes the personal with the political. He contemplates from afar where he comes from, having left Lesotho for Berlin. The film’s mother is revealed to be mother earth, against whom he revolts. His unusual and disturbing speech reveals impatience and frustration towards a society bent beneath the weight of history, religion and profiteers. Powerful slow-paced visual evocations give substance to the words with a harsh violence yet inseparable from a deep attachment…
