A heart-warming selection allowing us into the intricate details of companionship.
We all experience or witness moments of intimacy and friendship in our everyday lives. From the knowledge shared between lovers to the secrets kept between siblings or friends, the parts that make us whole include other people. In the ChiShona language, the word pachedu invokes a feeling of familiarity and kinship shared between individuals. Together with our closest allies, we dream, scheme, and hope ourselves into the future. Other times, we fall out and choose to sew back together the pieces we’ve let slip away. In every case, companionship is the boat that let’s us sail through life’s moments. Through these films, we are reminded to ride the waves, commune with one another, and continue to express our common need to be listened to and understood.
