This singular cinematic experience is a raw cry from the heart to the director’s homeland of Lesotho in southern Africa.

Shot on 16mm black-and-white film, Mother, I Am Suffocating. This Is My Last Film About You is a visually entrancing, experimental reckoning of the relationship between individual and nation. The film, through striking imagery and poetic voice-over, weighs the complex balance of love and hate that emerges out of relocation and the distance that allows for critical reflection of one’s roots. Innovative and inviting, Mother is a deeply personal and artfully told story that explores the tolls and possibilities of migratory displacement.
