Life, Above All movie poster

This is a movie with focus on story and credible characters, on universal truths and human struggle. Such is the power of Life, Above All, a tale of courage and conviction that bonds with the viewer like an intimate friendship. The story takes place in modern South Africa and involves the day-to-day family turmoil set off by the death of an infant child. The details of life are vividly realized by director Oliver Schmitz’s deft camera and the film’s young protagonist, Chanda, played with unflinching gravity by Khomotso Manyaka. 2011.
