| No question the best science fiction short I have ever seen
This short film holds emotional punch played out against a surprising amount of seamless (as opposed to obtrusive) world building. Kudzani Moswela's acting made me feel a character instead of see an actress. The sets, locations, and costumes were superb. The writing was well-done and kept me tantalized up to and past the ending.

Sometimes when you say a short film needs to be a movie, you are criticizing it for picking up a story with too large a scope to properly fit the medium. Pumzi doesn't need to be a movie; it deserves to be a movie. Also, someone get Kudzani into another film.

No question the best science fiction short I have ever seen. The fact this was created by a small Kenyan company makes it that much more incredible.
