Summary Wa 'n wina - filmmaker Dumisani Phakathi returns to his old neighbourhood in Phiri Township to film and talk to his friends about attitudes towards relationships and sex both traditionally and now in the shadow of AIDS. Body and soul - looks at the attitudes of the three main religions (Christianity, Islam and African traditionalist) in South Africa through people on the ground who have to interpret and practice religion in terms of the country's realities. The ball - tells the the story of Mozambican children who use condoms to make soccer balls. In a dramatization, a man confronts them and accuses them of stealing his condoms. This story illustrates that many people are not using condoms for safer sex, despite their availability. The sky in her eyes - story of a young girl in KwaZulu-Natal struggling to come to terms with the death of her mother from AIDS. A young boy befriends her and allows her to attach a drawing of her mother to his kite. Big balls - Two men are at work, one is black and the other white. They are building something together but there is tension. Their conversation is raw, peppered with innuendo and tales of supposed conquests. As they talk they spar with words that mean so little, but say so much. Funny yet devastatingly cruel. It becomes clear that those conquests will ultimately be their demise. House of love - explores the lives of sex-workers in the small Namibian harbor of Walvis Bay. The women are dependent for the business on the brief visits of foreign shipping trawlers. They give insights into the choices they have made and why they have made them. Their conflicts center around notions of love, sex, sin, and redemption, while the threat of HIV/AIDS exists only in the background.
