Set in the year 1220 at the ruins of Great Mapungubwe, the film takes Zulu cosmology and systems of transcendence and places them within a digital framework. An advanced black civilisation returns from the fourth dimension to deliver a message that would bring all black civilisations together against the digital empire of the devious Nqomqhayise, who has migrated the people’s history from the cloud to his company servers, thus disconnecting them from their past.

This film is part of Programme 9, screening on Tuesday 6:00 pm, 17 December 2019 in Al Hamra Cinema.
