This animation film was bought to life through the 2019 Tshimologong Precinct Animation Jam in partnership with Gobelins, l'école de l'image - Page officielle. The film was selected for its unique aesthetic and use of the Khoi dialect which would be well suited to the festival in showcasing proudly African content.
