Screening as part of an afternoon of African Documentaries about Children, with Waliden and Waited For.
The Necklace and the Bead is a beautiful letter from a father to his daughter. Both deeply poetic and realistic, this filmed letter explores the mystery of womanhood and completely subverts the way we look at bodies – specifically women’s bodies – from the body of pain that gives life, to the object of seduction or the ever-mutilated female African body.
The Africa in Motion documentary screenings are brought to you in collaboration with the Scottish Documentary Institute and Edinburgh College of Art.
