Tsidi, a single mother, is forced to move in with her estranged mother, Mavis, a live-in domestic worker caring obsessively for her catatonic white “Madam.” As Tsidi tries to heal her family, however, a sinister specter begins to stir.
Tsidi, a single mother with no place to live after her grandmother's death, moves into a mansion where her mother takes care of a wealthy white woman. Increasingly engrossed in the strange energy emanating from the very mansion where she once lived as a child, she acts beyond her own understanding. The mansion, the main set of Good Madam, is a symbol of South Africa where the roots of racism and slavery still remain. The film combines these settings with the ancient Egyptian custom of burial of the living with the dead. In Egyptian times, human-shaped burial goods called “shabti” were put together in tombs, and the shabti was a being who served as a slave to the dead even in the afterlife. Director Jenna Cato Bass created an original African horror film by expressing the psychological horror of Tsidi through these historical elements. [MOON Seok]
