• Image of DVD - Goodness and Happiness

Directed by Natalija Brunovs, this documentary is a tender, realistic and moving insight into the lives of two Zulu sisters, Goodness and Happiness.

Living in a remote rural village after the sudden death of their mother, they are adjusting to a life that one in five children in KwaZulu-Natal face, being parentless. In the film Goodness learns how to make a doll at one of Uthando Project's workshops and we glimpse the magnitude of the effects on her sister and the women who participated.

The film explores the important role of play in a child's life - and how a doll can make a difference.

The film is 10 minutes long and will stimulate discussion for students and people of all ages.
