Movie, Yesterday

main_postpremiere.jpg

I recently watched the movie, Yesterday, the first commercial feature-length production in Zulu. It tells of a beautiful young mother, named Yesterday, who discovers she has AIDS. Yesterday's warm and loving nature is set against the harsh landscapes of South Africa, in a remote village with no modern conveniences. The story takes you on a journey through Yesterday's life, and highlights her courage and determination to provide a life for herself and her daughter, Beauty, in whom she takes great joy.

I will not say more as I do not want to spoil the movie for you, but it is so inspiring. I encourage everyone who is looking for an inspirational and quietly powerful movie to watch Yesterday.

Janice, Thanks for telling us

Janice,

Thanks for telling us about this film, it seems wonderful! I don't watch a lot of films , but I'm also open to great ones. I recently watched Sisters in Law, it's about two female attorneys fighting for women's rights and fighting against violence against women in Cameroon.

Love,
Kizzie

Dearest Janice,
Namaskar,
Thanks for telling us about this movie.
I searched in the market but I didn’t find the movie “Yesterday.” I will search in Nepal and watch this movie.

With Love and Regards
