Location: Main House
The mountainous scenery of Lesotho provides the canvas for a profoundly visual story, which tells the tale of Atang: making a pilgrimage from the bustle of Johannesburg to his native Lesotho to bury his father. There, Atang is reunited with childhood friend Dineo, with whom he discovers a romantic spark. But her disapproving father sends Atang back to Jo’burg. Resolving to win her back, Atang enlists the help of a young orphan boy.
The first film ever to be produced in Lesotho, this is a beguiling quest steeped in the history and culture of the Basotho people. (Cambridge FF)
