Mbuzeni (the act of asking for an answer from God) tells the story of four orphan girls and their fixation with burials. The story takes place in a tiny remote South African village where the only cemetery that exists separates the villagers from the orphans.
In this community there are rules and regulations for burials which are strictly observed and strongly enforced. Rules which the villagers have observed and ones the girls continue to break when they play ‘burials’ at the gravesite. Their defiance will come at a price…
From one of South Africa’s most acclaimed young black female voices, comes a lyrical tale about sisterhood and friendship, infused with dark humour. With singing, music, poetry and the tonal clicking language of Xhosa, Mbuzeni explores obsession in the lives of four young girls.
