SUWI by Musola Cathrine Kaseketi
SUWI (Faith) is a story of two people, a young woman called Suwilanji (Have faith) and an orphan called Bupe (Gift) who find each other after drastic changes in their lives. While Suwilanji struggles against all odds to reclaim the life she lost and touches on many important issues in Zambian society, such as the struggle with the traditional beliefs in the westernised world, Bupe takes you through the journey of the lost generation of orphans who lose their parents through HIV & AIDS, and they live the everyday struggles of life on the street. Dr. Chabu Chimba, with a deep sense of humanity develops parental love and care for an orphan, Bupe, who is dumped at his office, and which takes him outside his profession to eventually fall in love.
The film shares the optimistic story about the search for freedom through determination with others in the community, and by young women. It is a universal story that I believe inspires audiences.
