The Forgotten Kingdom
by Andrew Mudge
Atang Mokoenya leaves the slums of Johannesburg to return to his ancestral land of Lesotho, where he must bury his estranged father in the remote, mountainous village where he was born. Stirred by memories of his youth, he falls in love with his childhood friend, Dineo, now a radiant young school teacher. Through her, Atang is drawn toward the mystical beauty and hardships of the people and land he had forgotten, and faces his own bittersweet reckoning.
Carve The Runes
by Luc Nadeau
“Carve The Runes” explores dying young, climate change, and family bonds. Two American brothers, Cai and Oz, meet up in Scotland to spend some time together after Oz is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Cai has been working as a lichenologist studying climate change in the Cairngorms. Oz is a writer whose muse is the Scottish poet George Mackay Brown. Oz has largely reconciled himself to the fact that he’s going to die, and he’s trying to finish his life by taking stock of who he was, what his life was about – he is writing his memoir, something his young son will be able to read after he’s gone. Cai, the older brother, is upset that Oz isn’t taking more measures to prolong his life. Throughout the movie, Cai begins to come around and to see things from Oz’s viewpoint.
