Kudu

Set in the year 2030, the AmaXhosa Nation has taken over the Eastern Cape in an attempt to utilise the land for their own prosperity. Three Khoi descendants and their aging cow are migrating to the Eastern Cape. Drama ensues when they come to Intaba KaNdoda, a poverty-stricken community once ruled by the Khoi chief Ndoda. The Khoi descendants, having heard stories of how chief Ndoda was killed in a land dispute, have come to reclaim what is rightfully theirs- they have come to take the land from the AmaXhosa. Kudu is not only about people reclaiming their land, but also their customs, culture, languages and spirituality. It’s a fight for acknowledgement as existing, not extinct.
