From dusk to dawn in Maputo the capital city of Mozambique

One part narrative and one part documentary MAPUTO NAKUZANDZA is the course of a day compressed into an hour. It’s a film largely without dialog with the only sounds being that of the actual settings and the non-stop stream of a local radio station. The narrative threads are loose as we watch several people go through their day.

This is a very nice little film. .While it doesn’t break any new ground it is a wonderful window into a place most of us have never been and probably never go. I was intrigued. Actually when the film was done I wanted to go back in and see the arc of everyone’s lives again knowing the where and hows of all that transpired.

If you like quiet meditations on life this film is for you
