Watch Africa: Liyana (advPG)

Swaziland/2017/77mins/advPG Dir: Aaron Kopp, Amanda Kopp

A Swazi girl embarks on a dangerous quest to rescue her young twin brothers. This animated African tale is born in the imaginations of five orphaned children in Swaziland who collaborate to tell a story of perseverance drawn from their darkest memories and brightest dreams. Their fictional character’s journey is interwoven with poetic and observational documentary scenes to create a genre-defying celebration of collective storytelling.

+ Storytelling workshop with Bevin Magama following the film

"The beautifully crafted film… is a spirited testament to the power of creativity — not only as a source of strength and joy, but as a way to access buried emotions. The kids conjure a world of danger and enchantment."
