(R)evolutions of Hope: “The Mother’s House”

The Indianapolis Museum of Art continues its (R)evolutions of Hope: Africa 2009 film series with The Mother’s House on Thursday, October 15, 2009. The film, by director Francois Verster, follows the story of a family living in Cape Town, South Africa. Tickets are $9.00 for Indianapolis people, $5.00 for Indianapolis Museum of Art members, and free to Indianapolis kids with a student ID.

The Indianapolis Museum of Art presents The Mother’s House, a documentary film about three generations of the Moses family. They live in one of Cape Town, South Africa’s most dangerous townships, and are constantly threatened by violence and drugs in their city. Miche, a symbol of hope in the future, is a mere eleven years old at the beginning of the film. As she grows older, the inevitable dangers of their home creep into her life. Follow her story, this Thursday at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and see if hope can survive such dreary circumstances.

The Mother’s House is a critically acclaimed film. The Apollo Film Festival jury called it, “a lyrical and at times eerie masterpiece of observational documentary filmmaking,” as they bestowed their highest honors on the film. The Mother’s House has also received the top awards from the Cape Town World Cinema Festival, the Zimbabwe International Film Festival, and the Doscur Film Festival in the Canary Islands. And now you have the chance to see it at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

It was produced in 2005 and runs about 76 minutes long. The film starts at 7:00 pm in the Toby Theatre at the Indianapolis Museum of Art this Thursday. Extend the boundaries of your global identity; see this film!

Make an evening out of it by grabbing dinner before the film at any of the wonderful Indianapolis restaurants in the nearby Indianapolis cultural district, Broad Ripple Village, just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Indianapolis Museum of Art. After the show, discuss global politics and human rights at the cool Indianapolis bars in Broad Ripple Village or Indianapolis downtown. Use this opportunity to define your place in the world and challenge your views on humanity.
