Here is the US trailer for Mother, I Am Suffocating. This Is My Last Film About You, the acclaimed, award-winning film from producer/writer/director Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese (This Is Not A Burial, It’s A Resurrection) depicting his personal experiences after his departure from Lesotho to now residing in Germany.
Mother, I Am Suffocating. This Is My Last Film About You. opens nationwide in theatres and virtual cinemas on November 12th.
The wastelands and crowded streets of an African country are traversed by a woman bearing a wooden cross on her back.
She is followed by sellers, beggars and passer-bys, outraged voices, pity and curious glances.
Parallel to her, among a herd of sheep, a lamb toddles its way from the far away mountains into the heart of the city only to find itself dangling, skinned and headless, on a butcher’s shoulder.
In the meantime, under the scorching sun, in a roofless house, a woman is persistently knitting a garment, unwinding a thread coiled over her son’s face.
Mother, I Am Suffocating. This Is My Last Film About You. is a symbolic social-political voyage of a society, spiraling between religion, identity and collective memory.
