Cause of Death

Causa de muerte
South Africa in co-production with Austria / 2020 / 20:00 / Videoarte
International short and medium-lenght films official competition
I: English
S: Miradas de Género
D: Jyoti Mistry

The file card of an anonymous autopsy report documents violent attacks as the ´cause of death´. Jyoti Mistry constructs five miniature vignettes to the rhythm of evocative spoken word poetry by Napo Masheane, a Southafrican writer and poet, accompanied by an extremely incompatible collection of archival bits and pieces from the EYE-Filmmuseum –­ ethnographic film footage, chorus-line films, and physical culture films. Femicide, witch hunts, stonings.
