From The Ashes

Part of the highly acclaimed documentary series “Landscape of Memory”, this film gives us a window onto the traditional approach to reconciliation in Mozambique following the sixteen year civil war which ended in 1992. It is set in a small village of Ilha Josina in the south of Mozambique and follows people who fought on both sides of the war and suffered at the hands of both. The film shows how, through ritual, spiritual beliefs and personally developed philosophies,  the villagers are reconciling their past, living the present and working towards their futures.
