Movie Info

A woman becomes curious about the outside world after a global catastrophe in this short sci-fi drama from writer and director Wanuri Kahiu. Thirty-five years after the end of World War III -- a conflict fought over water -- Asha (Kudzani Moswela) is a woman living in a small enclosed community of survivors in Africa. The community's precious water supplies must be carefully monitored, and all urine is sent through a purification process to be reused. While the leaders of the indoor village carefully monitor the activities of each citizen, Asha discovers a forgotten soil sample that suggests the outside world might still be capable of sustaining life; against the wishes of her superiors, she sets out to find what goes on outside the walls of her community. Pumzi was an official selection at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
