Banele | Fathers, Awareness of Camera, Communication, Pleasure, Parental exhaustion, Play, Siblings

Banele is with dad on the couch – looking into each other’s faces and “chatting”. “No, go away, man” says dad, smiling. Banele responds. Dad is aware of the camera and encourages Banele to look at it. Banele’s youngest sisters are at home doing some drawing activity with a new “Auntie” on the couch.

Dad feeds Banele and continually wipes saliva dripping from his mouth. After a while he asks Thando to bring a teething ring for Banele to chew on. Dad is tired and looks to the filmmaker often, as time goes on.
