Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese
Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese has his roots in Lesotho, the country surrounded by South Africa, but now lives and works in Berlin. In recent years, this self-taught filmmaker, screenwriter and visual artist has consistently made a big impression at leading film festivals such as Venice, Berlin and Sundance.
With films such as Mother I am Suffocating. This Is my Last Film About You (2018) and This Is Not a Burial, It’s a Resurrection (2019) he has proved himself to be one of the most dynamic and original voices in the contemporary film landscape. In terms of form, style and theme, his films balance between the personal and the universal, connecting as they do the post-colonial landscape to earlier oral narrative traditions. In doing so , Mosese is also consistently looking for adventurous forms and visual combinations.
He was part of the joint Eye / IFFR anniversary exhibition Vive le cinema! in 2021 and has been a guest lecturer at the Master Artistic Research in and through Cinema at the Netherlands Film Academy.
