Director Biography - Makganwana Mokgalong

She is a recluse that spends most of her time in the brutal comforting solitude of a writer’s world. Set life is not what her wettest dreams are made of, but she does enjoy the rare occasion of making images with other people. Directing Lebadi’s music video was her first foray into directing, a deeply satisfying experience that is yet to be repeated! Makganwana is open to the possibility of one day making another little film, because that is what music videos are. She loves story and will suffer anything, to string one up.

Director Statement

Melancholy is medicine. This music video shows that torment fully felt runs it's course and makes space for newness. I made this little film to give ourselves room to feel things that we often get over too quickly therefore incompletely.
