Staða hinsegin fólks í Afríku, hefðbundnar væntingar til karlmanna í afrískri menningu, og einangrunin sem mörg okkar finna tvinnast saman í myndinni. Myndin veitir innsýn í reynsluheim þeirra Tau og Tumelo, en þegar Tau uppgötvar kynhneigð sína og sendir það Tumelo í sína eigin sjálfsskoðunarvegferð.

//

We find Heaven Reaches Down to Earth at a crossroads of emerging stories: queerness in Africa, the traditional expectations of men within those African cultures, and the isolation that many of us find ourselves currently dealing with, as seen through the experiences of two young men, Tau and Tumelo. The film serves as a snapshot of a moment in which Tau’s realization about his sexual orientation acts as an accelerant that sets Tumelo on his own journey.
