I don't know why people are giving this film such bad reviews. It is certainly not a "cult film" in the sense that there are no black and white people on the screen. It is a film that exposes the reality of human life in the poorest areas of our society. That said, the film is certainly the best documentary I have seen about poverty in Africa. It portrays people who work in the fields and live in the areas where food and water is scarce. The scenes are also the most depressing. The problem is that the film is not made in the usual sense. It is a "documentary film". And I don't mean that in the sense of the usual narrative device of telling the story in a particular order, making sure that the audience is at least able to follow the movie. The camera is always right in the center of the action, and the director focuses on the most significant thing in the scene. That's not the same as telling the story through the camera. The director's message is to look at the actors as human beings who are simply making a living and who need to eat and drink. Not to make a documentary about the African poverty crisis. The main actors in this film are young men and women who live in a part of the country in which the food security is low. I saw this film at the National Film Festival in Cape Town. The actors are mostly young people, but some of the older ones do a good job too. I think that people will be able to relate to the film because the directors tries to show the reality of this situation. People who have heard of the plight of the poor in Africa are aware that there is food insecurity. I think that people will understand the difficulties of life in a place where there is not enough food and water and where people cannot make a living from farming. It is a film that can make an impact on the viewer.
