Banele | Self-regulation, Feeding, Presence/absence, Frustration, Parental exhaustion, Fathers

Dad is at home with Banele and the other children. Banele is unsettled and dad is struggling to get him to sleep. The camera is also struggling to find and settle on focus. The living room has been darkened with new brown curtains to stop by passers seeing into the room with its new very large television screen. The new curtains also prevent any windows from being opened. Dad looks at the camera often, even though it is still early in the hour of filming. Zanele audibly mock dad’s constant rebukes from the couch behind him.
