Days of Cannibalism is a fascinating portrait of culture clash in the southern African nation of Lesotho.

Weaving documentary footage around a fictionalised narrative, director Teboho Edkins has crafted a riveting film that plays with the cinematic tropes of the Western. Chinese migrants have begun to establish themselves in a rural cattle-ranching community in Lesotho, causing disquiet among the locals who fear a change to their traditional practices. As tension grows between the two groups, Edkins shares engrossing and often humorous insights into their unusual place in an increasingly globalised landscape.
