Eclipse is a dreamlike documentary depicting the total blackout of four girls’ lives, eclipsed by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. It is a story about four sisters, Laura, Enguinesse, Fatima and Luisa – the oldest sixteen and the youngest nine. They are orphans living in the Mozambican town of Chimoio. Their mother died of AIDS related diseases and their father disappeared, probably to commit suicide in a nearby place of spirits. The film documents the girls’ day to day struggle for existence as they try to make ends meet by re-selling produce they have bought from the market.
