Walk with Angels

Spacer z Aniołami

Czech premiere

The search for one of South Africa's many lost children becomes a contemplation on the state of a country that has yet to escape the imprint of colonial tyranny.

Polish documentary filmmaker Tomasz Wysokiński follows a young South African, Jerry, in his almost certainly hopeless search for a lost girl. Angie is just one of many children who disappear without a trace with devastating regularity and whose fates are terrifying. Jerry, a former child soldier, himself haunted by his own demons and doubts, walks through the streets of poverty-stricken neighbourhoods, observing the misery in which his brothers and sisters live. This intense, darkly poetic documentary, which does not offer the viewer much relief and occasionally straddles the boundary of what can in good conscience be shown on the screen, conveys to viewers the postcolonial trap in which many people still live.
