Film screenings: Everything must come to light

25min / South Africa / 2003 / Mpumi Njinge & Paulo Alberton

This documentary focuses on the lives of three dynamic same-sex identified women who are izangoma (traditional healers) living in Soweto. They are articulate, sympathetic women who are willing to share their stories. This as an unusual tale, set in a realm that often shrouded in silence and secrecy. After leaving their husbands, two of the women were able to explore their sexuality in relation to other women as a result of their dominant male ancestors instructing them to take wives. The relationship with their ancestors and the roles that they play in their healing powers and their sexuality are focal points.
