‘The Crucifixion of Amagqwirha’ tells the tale of four young girls who are desperately seeking their missing friend.
Unfortunately their quest seems to reach a cul de sac when their concerns are taken up by a community of elders who are arrested by the suspicions and superstitions that come with an old wives tale – coupled with a young newly appointed chief who’s reasoning seems to mimic that of a teenage boy, who views and navigates through life as though it was one long video game.
The story is executed in a proudly South African manner, through the use of indigenous folk tales and shadow puppetry.
