Africa In Motion Film Festival 2019 present this experimental essay film which traces a narrative of migration by a filmmaker in exile, showing a stark snapshot of life on the African continent. Beautifully shot entirely in black and white, Mosese uses powerful close-ups to portray the memories of a generation of people in Lesotho. This poetic voyage traverses between politics, identity and collective memory as a woman bearing a wooden cross on her back sets the trail for a fierce lamentation. The film is a bid of farewell to his homeland, infused with love and rage and exploring the complexities of leaving a place you have called home.
