Thu 25 February
In a small village surrounded by mountains, 80-year-old widow Mantoa winds up her earthly affairs, makes arrangements for her burial and prepares to die. But when her village is threatened with forced resettlement due to the construction of a reservoir, she finds a new will to live and ignites a collective spirit of defiance within her community in the final dramatic moments of her life. Mantoa’s legend is forged and made eternal. A stunningly beautiful film about self-reflection and the power of place.
