Limkokwing University of Creative Technology and National University of Lesotho film students have come together to shoot a short film portraying challenges associated with Covid-19, especially being locked down.

In this era of coronavirus, the world is moving rapidly towards doing things online. Due to social distancing and schools being closed, ways were made to teach students using e-learning.

The 13-minute long film titled ‘Botsa Lebitla’ depicts the obstacles that students come across regarding online learning.


Producer and writer, Matlere Matete told theReporter that the film seeks to make both parents and lecturers aware of the challenges students face individually on a daily basis.

“As students, we live in different places and some areas do not have power, making it difficult for laptops and phone to charge; which results in late submission or no submission at all.

The movie was shot in two days at Mpharane near Maputsoe in the Leribe district, and it took three weeks to edit.
