Curated by Ankit Poudel
On the dusty streets of Lesotho, people stare at a young lady who carries a wooden cross on her back. She looks back at their faces. Taking the form of an extended poetic letter to the protagonist’s mother and Motherland, the film shifts its focus and perspective between Lesotho, a tiny nation in Southern Africa and Germany where the director lives.
