Life, Above All (Chanda's Secret)

[no cert]

South Africa 2010, 105 mins
Director: Oliver Schmitz

LIFE, ABOVE ALL reinvents the coming-of-age story when a young girl must maintain the facade of a normal life amidst utter instability.

The spread of HIV/AIDS appears to be ravaging Chanda's South African township even though no one will speak the actual words. Filmmaker Oliver Schmitz explores cultural taboos, adolescence and religion through the lens of a poorly understood and feared disease, instilling his film with a keen sense of understanding and emotional gravitas that is at once artful and accessible.
