(Foreign language film with English subtitles)

When 12 year-old Chanda and her family learn of an unpleasant rumour that spreads through their village like wildfire, her mother is forced to seek refuge from the prejudice of her superstitious neighbours. Chanda soon begins to suspect, however, that things might not be as they seem: fearing for her mother’s safety and unable to trust even those closest to her, she sets out to uncover the truth.

'Life, Above All' is an emotional and universal drama about a young girl (stunningly performed by first-time-actress Khomotso Manyaka) who fights the fear and shame that have poisoned her community. Directed by South African filmmaker Oliver Schmitz ("Mapantsula", "Paris, je t´aime"), it is based on the international award winning and best-selling novel “Chanda’s Secrets” by Allan Stratton.
