With the sensitivity to respect the mutilated victim of baby rape by mixing stop-start animation with real people, Lara Foot Newton and Gerhard Marx`s short film has limitless ambition and a surreal imagination.
Based on true events in South Africa in 2001 when a nine month old baby was found raped and murdered, And There In The Dust resembles a visual poem, beautifully rendered by Mncedisi Shabangu`s spoken narrative ("Nothing ever happens here. The sun is always looking at us - The Big Boss"), accompanied by imagery from the dreamscape of a child.
