About The Taste of Mango

The Taste of Mango, Chloe Abrahams’ debut feature, is an enveloping, hypnotic, urgently personal meditation on family, memory, identity, violence, and love. At its center are three extraordinary women: the director’s mother, Rozana; her grandmother, Jean; and the director herself. Their stories, by turns difficult and jubilant, testify to the entangled and ever-changing nature of inheritance and the ways in which we both hurt and protect the ones we love. [75 min; documentary; English]

A Q&A with In Light Film Festival curator Narmeen Ijaz (PhD candidate, Media School) and Mallika Khanna (PhD candidate, Media School) will follow the screening.

"Weaves a spellbinding portrait of love and perseverance." — Sophie Terakes, FILMINK

"Abrahams’ film reaffirms the strength of generational bonds and champions the desire of the new generation to question and provoke and demand answers." —  Tom Davidson, London Evening Standard

"There are evocations of Kirsten Johnson and Agnès Varda in Abrahams’s collage-like approach." — Reverse Shot
