Director Statement

I would like this film to stir up necessary conversation in Namibian households as well as households all over the world. LGBTQIA+ phobia is putting the lives of members of the LGBTQIA+ community in danger, countless lives have been lost, many whose names we will never come to know. More than ever, we need to come together to amplify the voices and the stories of those who are being made to feel as though their existence is a crime. May Mukumo spark the courage for all of us to live our truths unapologetically.
