Where did you watch this movie?

Based on the Elsa Joubert novel "The Long Journey of Poppie Nongena", tells the story of a South African woman, an Afrikaans speaking Xhosa mother, whose life revolves around her family and finding stability in a period of insufferable upheaval in the country. With her husband being too ill to work and deemed an 'illegal' resident in her own country, Poppy engages in a desperate struggle with the authorities for permission to stay, moving house to house, applying for permits, applying for extensions and using every means at her disposal to remain with her children. Caught in the whirlpool of her children's needs, her husband's illness, community anger and, repressive laws, she was finally forced to give in just as the 1976 riots for freedom had erupted.
