Sew the Winter to my Skin is an artistic recount of the myth of John Kepe (Ezra Mabengeza), an outlaw and Robin Hood figure of South Africa. The film was shown at the Toronto Film Festival and selected as South Africa's entry for best foreign language film.

As the review suggests, this is a rousing and suspenseful movie, but also artistic and experimental, so we plan for a lively discussion after the viewing!
