Abstract:

Imagine a country where more people die of AIDS, malnutrition and lack of medical care each week than are killed in Afghanistan, Iraq or Darfur. Where hospitals operate without doctors, urban neighborhoods suffer months without water, and unemployment tops 90 percent. Then imagine navigating that country from a wheelchair, without functioning hands, or with some other disability in a culture where the disabled are seen as cursed. You don't have to imagine. iThemba takes you there in a rich verite tapestry about the band Liyana, eight edgy young musicians who negotiate their country's chaotic political waters, economic collapse and deep-seated prejudices with humor and grit.
