Drought has struck. Father pushes his wife away from the family dinner of termites. In anger, when mother challenges him, he digs a pit with a brutal purpose, but little does he suspect that Mother can retaliate just as powerfully. Based on an old Shona folk tale and rendered as a musical celebrating a diversity of contemporary Zimbabwean music, Mother’s Day is the newest and most exciting motion picture development to come out of Zimbabwe.

With the wonderful voice of Prudence Katomeni.

Kare Kare Zvako – Mother’s Day won the Short Film Award at it’s premiere at the Zimbabwe International Film Festival 2004.

Selected at the Sundance Film Festival 2005.
