On the occasion of World Aids Day (01 December), the International Day of Persons with Disability (03 December), and the International Human rights Day (10 December), AfricAvenir & FNCC present the Namibian Premiere of Suwi – Faith Beyond Limit (directed by Musole Catherine Kaseketi, Zambia/Finland, 2009).
About the film
Suwi (Faith) is a story of two people, a young woman called Suwilanji (Have faith) and an orphan called Bupe (Gift) who find each other after drastic changes in their lives. While Suwilanji struggles against all odds to reclaim the life she lost and touches on many important issues in Zambian society, Bupe takes you through the journey of the lost generation of orphans who lose their parents through HIV & AIDS, and they live the everyday struggles of life on the street.
The film’s director, Musola Cathrine Kaseketi declares, “You can make a difference”, and she certainly has, by showing that women with disabilities are not different than anyone else; given the chance to learn, excel and succeed. Musola Cathrine Kaseketi founded the Shungu Namutitima International Film Festival of Zambia (SHUNAFFoZ), with this objective in mind: To showcase through cinema, the capabilities of people and women in particular, with disabilities.
She had this to say to Beti Ellerson in an interview on the African Women in Cinema Blog:
