Jenna Cato Bass's horror-satire chillingly brings to light the relics of the apartheid era in South Africa today.

GOOD MADAM (MLUNGU WAM) is an eerie psychological thriller about Tsidi, a single mother who is forced to move in with her estranged mother Mavis, a live-in domestic worker caring obsessively for her catatonic white ‘Madam’. Mavis welcomes her daughter and granddaughter with reluctance and Tsidi blames her mother for never being around for her, as Mavis was always obsessively devoted to Madam’s white family. As Tsidi tries to heal her family however, the sinister spectre of ‘Madam’ begins to stir.
