Neria [VHS]

Godwin Mawuru
This Zimbabwean feature film explores the plight of Neria after her husband is killed in an accident. Her brother-in-law proceeds to take possession of her belongings, her bank account, her home, and finally her children, and Neria fights back, seeking assistance from both Shona tradition and the modern court system. Director Godwin Mawuru was inspired to make this film by his own childhood experiences after the death of his father. Novelist Tsitsi Dangarembga wrote the story, Louise Riber wrote the screenplay, and Media for Development Trust produced the film with a grant from The Canada Fund. Stars Jessie Mungoshi and Dominic J. Kanaventi, with pop star Oliver Mutukudzi in a supporting role and supplying the great soundtrack (see the Neria soundtrack album in the Music section).
