The film documents the days before the protagonist left South Africa to come to Belgium. It explores the choices or lack of choice one has to remain or leave a place.


Megan-Leigh HEILIG

Received her MFA at the University of Cape Town. She uses film as a way to test, experiment history and power in private and public archives. It is also an attempt to queer the archive, in order to engage different sexual and loving relationships and possibilities of imagining the past or the future.
