Wondering why times are missing?

Liyana

In this unique, hybrid documentary, five young children in Swaziland—orphans of the AIDS epidemic—turn their past trauma into creative fuel for an original, collective fairy tale. Basically, the kids are learning to spin their own oral folk tales at the Likhaya Lemphilo Lensha orphanage where they live. Mixed among images of the kids' authentic daily life is this bright and evolving folk tale, which sends a young girl on a dangerous quest and is visually rendered in a mixture of 2D and 3D animation. 77 minutes Unrated.
