When five young Zulu women venture into the wilderness, their lives change forever. Set in the iMfolozi wilderness, South Africa, the oldest game park in Africa, Sisters of the Wilderness tells the story of five young Zulu women going into the wilderness for the first time. The film explores the plight of this ancient wilderness, which is threatened by rhino poaching and open-cast coal mining. This beautiful poetic film subtly links what is happening to wilderness areas across the world to what is happening to women.

The film will be introduced by the filmmaker, Karin Slater, who will also take questions after the screening of the film.
