Part of Film 2019 series FilmAfrica
Directed by Jahmil X.T. Qubeka | 2018

With Ezra Mabengeza, Peter Kurth, Kandyse McClure

Told with the visual grandeur of a classic western, this senses-stunning epic recounts the life and legend of John Kepe, a Robin Hood-esque bandit who achieved folk hero status among black South Africans by robbing and outwitting colonizers in the 1950s. Forgoing dialogue in favor of dense, expressionistic sound design, Sew the Winter to My Skin is “a visionary work…[that] rewards patient viewers with its sensory riches and hypnotic rhythms” (The Hollywood Reporter).

Post-screening Q&A with director Jahmil X.T. Qubeka
