Better Must Come: A Dispatch From Malawi

 

BETTER MUST COME: a dispatch from Malawi (Cultures of Resistance Films)

film series director/producer: iara lee
camera/editor: danilo arenas ireijo

This music video for “Better Must Come,” a song by Ishan Cyapital featuring Teebz, gives voice to popular dissatisfaction with corruption and denounces government apathy about the urgent problems facing countries like Malawi. The citizens of Malawi are confronting ongoing issues of poverty, government corruption, and electoral fraud. Amid widespread protests, the country’s Constitutional Court annulled the results of the country’s 2019 presidential election, citing widespread irregularities. Today, Malawians continue to fight to defend their rights and bring about much-needed positive change, and a new election date has been set for June 23, 2020. “Better Must Come” encourages youth in the heart of Africa to remain strong in the face of these challenges and to speak out against the dirty practices that maintain the current system.
