First local film to be screened at Sterkinekor

By Khahliso Khama

MASERU — In an historic development, Lesotho’s first feature film will be screened at Sterkinekor cinemas at Pioneer Shopping Centre next month.

The movie, Tears of Blood, will start showing from October 1 to 15 following its premiere on September 29.

“Tears of Blood has been completed and is ready to be viewed,” T’sepang Mosena of BAM Promotions, the company behind the film, told the Weekender

“It will hit the shelves this month after its launch and it will also grace the cinema screens early next month.”

She said they were thrilled to have a locally produced film with a local cast showing at a local cinema.

The film, centred on Lesotho’s water crisis, was directed by local film-maker Jeremiah Mosese.

“Completing our first huge film project is a big step in promoting Lesotho’s film industry which is not well appreciated and recognised,” Mosena said.

“From where I stand, Tears of Blood is a good quality film which meets the criteria and standards of good international films.

“It is a product proudly made in Lesotho to provide a platform for young people.”

She said she was confident the movie would boost the local film industry.

“We want to see film in Lesotho being recognised at an international level,” Mosena said.

“It is only through enormous support, right resources and training that this country will produce great writers, producers and actors and actresses whose work can stand out in the international market.”
