English

In 1968, artist Dumile Feni escaped the oppression of Apartheid South Africa and went into exile, leaving behind his pregnant wife. Days before his homecoming in 1991, Feni died suddenly and tragically. Alongside his daughter, this documentary attempts to reclaim a man who was lost to another, unfamiliar world by inviting those who knew him to paint a portrait of the man and his life across three continents. However, through their accounts we find that Feni’s essence as a human being will forever remain as elusive and complex as his exceptional work.

Director Suleman, explores the impact of exile on families and restores Feni to his rightful place in South African history.
