Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese’s farewell to his homeland, Africa, is a lyrical and visual poem that invites the viewers to become closely familiar with the harsh social and economic reality of the Dark Continent. Using a series of transitions and black and white close-ups, Mosese oscillates between these hardships and his childhood memories, the memories of an entire generation. He creates a profoundly intimate portrayal of life in the city streets, the simple village craftsmen, and their way of life. In the background, he bids a frank, final farewell to his mother—the woman and the land. His farewell is a mix of love and rage, suffocation and liberation, feelings experienced by anyone who leaves their homeland, both physically and mentally.
