Wah-wah (2006)

Film details


Richard E. Grant's semi autobiographical writing and directorial debut, set in Swaziland at the end of the 1960's is a coming of age story told from the point of view of a young boy. It focusses on the gradual disintegration of a dysfuntional family which mirrors the dismantling of British colonial rule and the achievement of independence by Swaziland. Whilst the white community attempts to maintain an outward show of normality there is an outpouring of jubilation from the liberated Africans.
