Liyana - BUY THIS BLU-RAY!
Under the guidance of acclaimed South African storyteller, Gcina Mhlophe, five orphaned children from Eswatini collaborate to craft a collective fairytale drawn from their darkest memories and brightest dreams. Their fictional character, Liyana, is brought to life in innovative animated artwork as she embarks on a perilous quest to rescue her young twin brothers. The childrenâ€™s real and imagined worlds begin to converge, and they must choose what kind of story they will tell - in fiction and in their own lives.
â€‹This genre-defying film weaves an original animated hero's journey with poetic documentary scenes to create an inspiring tale of perseverance. LIYANA is a tribute to the strength of the human spirit and the healing power of storytelling.
Critically acclaimed, and executive produced by Emmy-winning actress, Thandie Newton, LIYANA has won more than 35 jury and audience awards and screened at more than 100 film festivals around the world including the British Film Instituteâ€™s London Film Festival and MoMAâ€™s Doc Fortnight.
