Amazing news for Matabeleland from Sundance

Events  /  20th April 2024

The good news keeps coming for ‘Matabeleland’ Director Nyasha Kadandara and Producer Sam Soko. The film was recently selected as one of the 2022 Sundance Documentary Fund Grantees on the 20th anniversary of the Documentary Film Programme.

Matabeleland which is currently in production is the story of Chris, a struggling migrant truck driver who must choose between being exploited in a foreign land or returning to the country that killed his father. Out of desperation, he joins a religious cult to find an answer.

“The critical work supported by this year’s round of funding truly encapsulates the spirit of the Documentary Film Program for its 20th anniversary. Our grantees are telling culturally significant stories that will help shift global narratives and effect real change, and it is a privilege to bring these independent stories into the fabric of the Sundance community.” 
- Paola Mottura, Documentary Film Fund Director

We are super grateful to Sundance Institute for the support.
