Life, Above All

A film by Oliver Schmitz

A touching mother-daughter relationship that reflects the modern South Africa.

“’Life Above All’ is about deep human emotion, evoked with sympathy and love.” – Roger Ebert

Just after the death of her newly-born sister, Chanda, 12 years old, learns of a rumor that spreads like wildfire through her small, dust-ridden village near Johannesburg. It destroys her family and forces her mother to flee. Sensing that the gossip stems from prejudice and superstition, Chanda leaves home and school in search of her mother and the truth. LIFE, ABOVE ALL is an emotional and universal drama about a young girl who fights the fear and shame that have poisoned her community. The film captures the enduring strength of loyalty and a courage powered by the heart.
