Hot Chili

Former Columbia College film student Moabi Mogorosi wrote, directed, and stars in this pleasant Botswanan fable (48 min.) about a lowly village gardener whose love for the king's daughter is frowned upon by the royal family, which wants her married off to someone from her caste. Faced with a clutch of eager suitors, the king decides to settle the matter by marrying her to the victor of an amusing contest involving hot chilies. The success of this simple tale is due mainly to the witty lead performances by the two main rivals—Mogorosi as the resourceful gardener and Kabo Ditlhakeng as a vainglorious prince. In English and Setswanan with subtitles.
