๐ŸŽฅ๐ŸŒŸ Join us this Heritage Month for a thought-provoking exploration of a cherished African tradition - LOBOLA! ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ’ฐ

Katlego Maake from Matibidi Village, Mpumalanga, is bringing the enlightening film "LOBOLA: A BRIDE'S TRUE PRICE" by filmmaker Sihle Hlophe to Hlong Secondary School. This documentary delves into the age-old practice of lobola, where the bridegroom's family offers cattle or cash to the bride's family just before marriage.

Sihle Hlophe's journey, spanning years leading up to her own wedding day, captures the essence of lobola negotiations from various regions. The film resonates with universal tensions between personal beliefs, familial expectations, cultural respect, and evolving gender roles in the 21st century.

Katlego engaged with grade eleven and twelve high school students and sparked a vibrant discussion on the significance of lobola. Many students, having grown up in families that practice lobola, shared their belief in its importance. It's often said that lobola isn't just a tradition but a bridge to harmonious family life. Not adhering to it might lead to conflicts as the ancestors may not recognize the union.

One student eloquently shared, "In my view, Lobolo is a token of appreciation and family tradition that should be cherished for generations to come."

Stay tuned for more exciting screenings throughout September, as we use film as a powerful tool to ignite meaningful conversations! ๐Ÿ“ฝ๐Ÿ—ฃ
