I loved this film - the imagery was beautiful. The only bug bear for me was the snot on the youngest child's face. I'm often surprised how often it is deemed OK by filmmakers to film African children in that way. As an African child growing up in South Africa, I was taught to always inform the child or the mother if the child's nose needed cleaning - as a filmmaker I would definitely do the same. Focussing on the snot deprives one of seeing the beauty of the child - and the child was very beautiful - but I struggled to divert my eyes from the snot! Also, as someone who can understand SiSwati, I would have loved to have been able to hear the children speaking - rather than hear the music over their voices and be forced to read subtitles. Otherwise - it was a beautifully made film - thank you!
