Sins of Our Mother

When Lori Vallow's kids vanished, the search for them unearthed a trail of suspicious deaths, a new husband who shared her doomsday views — and murder.

Lori Vallow was known to friends and family as a devoted mother of three, a loving wife, and a woman of God.

But over the past three years, something went very wrong: Now Lori is in jail, waiting to stand trial for conspiracy to commit murder and first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of her fourth husband, her fifth husband's wife, and her two youngest children.

For the first time, Lori's surviving son Colby steps forward to provide exclusive insight into his family's backstory as well as their present-tense narrative as Lori faces justice.

At the heart of this three-part series is a single burning question: how did a seemingly normal woman become the most notorious mother in America?

57 is the number of South Africans that have been murdered every day in the last few years.

The making of this film is inspired by the tragic murder of Matwetwe lead actor, Sibusiso Khwinana, who was stabbed to death in Pretoria during  a theft of his cellphone.

The incident happened outside a cinema where the film Matwetwe was screening.

A group of filmmakers who were connected to the film, Matwetwe, go on a three-year-long journey to try and make sense of our insane murder rate and crime statistics.

The film is an attempt to find some meaning behind these insane numbers.

How is it possible that 57 people can be murdered every day? Our murder statistics compare to those of a war zone.

The film explores a subject close to all South Africans hearts.

Why are we such a violent society? Why is there so much rage in South African men? Why do we kill each other in such large numbers?

Even though the subject matter is hard, the film attempts to shine light on the subject.

The documentary aims to open a conversation, unearth insights, and begin to demystify the madness that is currently consuming and suffocating our nation, while at the same time honour and explore Sibusiso's tragic passing.

It is only when we really understand the complexities of this subject matter that we can begin to find ways to fix them.

We speak to criminologists, psychologists, historians, academics, journalists, comedians and many every day South Africans.

People interviewed include Gareth Newham, Kagiso Lediga, Eusebius McKaiser, Mmatshilo Motsei, Brenda Goldblatt, Joey Rasdien, KG Mokgadi, Jonny Steinberg, Tebatso Mashishi, Fuad Cassim, Peter Delius and many others.
