Sesotho film wins award in US

A new South African film The Forgotten Kingdom has lifted the Audience Award for Best Feature at the 2013 Ashland Independent Film Festival in Oregon, the US.

Although Ashland is just a small festival, it’s big news for the Sesotho-language film that was shot in Lesotho and written and directed by Andrew Mudge.

It indicates that foreign audiences are happy to buy into a universal story told in Sesotho.
