This Is Not a Burial, It’s a Resurrection
Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese, Lesotho, South Africa, Italy, 2019, 120’
In the mountains of Lesotho, an 80-year-old widow is preparing to wind up her earthly journey by arranging her own funeral. But when the government announces plans to resettle her village to make way for a new reservoir, her renewed will to live ignites a spark of resistance in her community. This is a sorrowful contemporary legend echoing the fates of many rural communities forced to abandon their homes, fields, lives, and traditions in the name of neocolonial progress.
