This is not a Burial, it's a Resurrection

CHF 19.90 / EUR 18.50

Amongst the pythonic mountains of landlocked Lesotho, an 80 year old widow winds up her earthly affairs, makes arrangements for her burial and prepares to die. But when her village is threatened with forced resettlement due to the construction of a reservoir, she finds a new will to live and ignites a collective spirit of defiance within her community. In the final dramatic moments of her life, Mantoa's legend is forged and made eternal.

«The director handles the cinematic language precisely, lavishly reveals a quality close to that of Greek tragedy, and meticulously deploys strong sense of ritual and style for the realistic issues about land justice and forced demolition and relocation.» Variety
