Disobedience  (A film by Licinio Azevedo, Mozambique 2002)

Fiction or Reality. Reality of Fiction.  Disobedience tells the story of a woman in Mozambique who is accused of having caused her husband’s suicide for being disobedient and possibly, for having a spirit husband. Based on a real story, the actual woman plays herself, and the role of the husband is played by the deceased husband’s twin bother. The same community that has shunned the real-life woman plays itself in one genre-bending film rarely seen outside of film festivals.

In Xitewa and Portuguese with English Subtitles.
