Thing With No Name

Loading...
"In post-apartheid South Africa, life has gotten better, but now there is a disease that has hold on a vanishing population. Sixty-three percent of the world's population infected with HIV/AIDS lives in the country, and in Kwazulu Natal, where the rate of infection in women is twice that of men, one out of every six people is HIV-positive. Thing With No Name follows two Zulu women as they begin rigorous and oftentimes confusing antiretroviral drug therapy.

Zulu Love Affairs

Loading...
Set in the verdant hills of Kwa-Zulu Natal, this is an intimate and spontaneous depiction of the lives of women left behind while their husbands, migrant laborers, work in the mines far away. By turns sad, touching or amusing, this film bears eloquent testimony to the ravages of an economic system which tears families apart to feed South Africa's insatiable mines. These women raise huge families, tend the fields, herd the cattle, and generally run village affairs. One says defiantly "I'm the man of the house." As they talk with each other and the filmmaker one hears many of the same joys and sorrows, angers and hopes as one would anywhere in the world. But here life is shaped by the absence of men, who seem to come home only to make children and contribute paltry pay to the subsisten [...]
