Sew the Winter to My Skin (2018)
Critic Reviews for Sew the Winter to My Skin
While the project of infusing a local legend with grandly cinematic, mythic status is a worthy one, the film can't quite get out of its own way, and the result is incoherently at odds with itself...
Qubeka's largely wordless, diffuse, time-scrambled narrative feels willfully confusing at first, but it rewards patient viewers with its sensory riches and hypnotic rhythms.
Overall, Sew the Winter to My Skin is unique in style and finds a way to leave you confused and spell bound telling a story as equally captivating as it is entertaining.
It's a perfect union of genre, mythology and political filmmaking, using generic tropes and familiar narrative patterns both to lampoon colonialism and to reflect on the ways that all westerns are in some way about myth.
These are very exciting times in what I now firmly believe is the healthiest branch of South African art.
