A Kenyan family drama of Shakespearean proportions, THE LETTER (IDFA, AFI Docs) is a tribute to the fearless spirit of 94-year old Margaret Kamango. Her prized ancestral land becomes a target for close family members, who mount a witch hunt under the thinly-veiled guise of Pentecostal Christianity, as others, including her grandson Karisa rally around her. Directed by Maia Lekow (producer, composer) and Christopher King (producer, cinematographer).
