Banele | Anxiety, Heritage, Thinking, Fathers

Banele is still asleep in mom’s arms. Mom, unprompted, shares with the camera cultural pressures to conform to certain behaviours. She also talks about how much the other siblings notice her behaviour towards Banele and ask if she acted similarly towards them when they were small. Mom also describes being under the watchful and judging eye of dad and expectations to be “Super Mom”. Mom discusses feeling punished by the infant. Banele’s sisters cradle printer cartridges in their arms.
