Mozambique 1997, 57 min.
There is more than one good story in the film Tchuma Tchato, a documentary that combines traditional African storytelling with a straightforward focus on the troubles of modern times. The stories take place on the south bank of the Zambezi river, where the borders of Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Zambia meet. As pointed out by the main figure in the film, it’s a place where everything begins with a Z, the last letter in the alphabet. A remote place, indeed.
