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.

The implementation will take place in a situation-adapted format and taking into account all applicable preventive measures and instructions.
