Tau, a Mountain. Tumelo, a Fire. They approach each other.
We find HEAVEN REACHES DOWN TO EARTH at a crossroads of emerging stories: queerness in Africa, traditional expectations of men within those African cultures, and the isolation that many of us find ourselves currently dealing with.
It is our hope that this film serves as a snapshot of a moment, in which Tau’s realization about their sexuality acts as an accelerant that sets Tumelo on his own journey.
Reflection in isolation, concerning a space as highly contested as the black body.
