Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese’s award-winning second feature centers around Mantoa, an 80-year-old woman (renowned South African actor Mary Twala Mhlongo, in one of her last film roles) preparing for her death while fighting to maintain the cultural traditions of her community in a small Lesotho village threatened with resettlement. A magic-realist, hypnotic, and impressionistic story about grief, belonging, tradition, and ancestry. (Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese, Lesotho, 2019, Southern Sotho with English subtitles, DCP, 120 minutes)
