Film Description: Incensed by the current political situation in Italy whereby the government have made the migrants a scapegoat for the country’s problems, the symbolic and socio-politically pertinent video tells the story of one man’s journey through two different lenses – the literal and spiritual. The cinematic video sees main protagonist played by South African musician Kholeho Mosala leave his family and embark on a treacherous journey across the sea. Accompanied throughout by a group of dancers who represent both the real and spiritual ferrymen that go with him, the video is littered with recurring symbols and themes in this journey include a tarot suit; the stick, the sword, the cup, the money and coins, and Homer’s The Odyssey.
