MAKING A LIVING IN THE DRY SEASON

35 min. 2016, ANGOLA, PORTUGAL, UK (recorded in Angola)

Directed, recorded, produced by Ines Ponte

Set in the highlands village of Katuwo, the film is an intimate portrait of the day-to-day life of a family living in an agro-pastoralist farm in Namibe, Angola. Through the filmmaker’s request to her host Madukilaxi to put her skills into the making of a doll, the film addresses a twofold notion of labour taking place in the dry season: their shared doll-crafting and making a living. Lipuleni, Madukilaxi’s toddler, follows their twofold labour, and the three of them celebrate their efforts with a feast.
