Banele | Skin, Awareness of Camera, Communication, Presence/absence, Pleasure, Gaze, Bathing, Support, Curiosity, Siblings
Continuing from Banele 65 days, clip 1, mom undresses Banele to bath him. There is a lot of talking to Banele and between other family members. Mom asks Banele who is troubling him. She mentions some siblings’ names and tells Banele that she will “kill them dead”. Zanele is closely watching the bathing. She appears more involved with Banele than before. The children notice how Banele is growing. Once bathed, Banele is dressed in a warm new baby-grow which mom comments is already almost too small for him. Zanele says that Bhuti [directly translated as brother, but also used when talking to him as a term of endearment] that he looks nice.
