Local Content Is Baie Lekker
The increase in film production in Mzansi, be it local or co-production is really amazing. Our audience will probably complain forever "when we look at our screens we want to see ourselves presented truthfully and to see stories that resonate with us". That excuse has reached its expiry date. Those who are convinced that we lack a cinema "culture" in SA should check Black Panther's box office success in African countries and SA specifically. How did that happen?
I picked Top 5 of best movies that ever been produced in the Mzansi PLUS Terry Pheto's new movie.
#1. Five Fingers For Marseilles
A member of the Five Fingers returns to colonial Marseilles after fleeing police aggression two decades before, and finds the town under a new threat.
#2. Catching Feelings
The lives of a formerly-famous writer and his wife are disrupted when a famous and very self-indulgent author comes to stay with them.
#3. iNumber Number
Chili and Sello, undercover cops, are cheated out of a large reward by their corrupt superiors. Chili infiltrates a gang as it prepares to rob an armored car, and instead of busting them, he convinces Sello to participate in the score.
#4. Tell Me Sweet Something
#5. Hard To Get
Award-winning actress Terry Pheto on Monday last week confirmed that she plays a lead role in an international feature film Faces, which is going to have its world premiere at the upcoming Durban International Film Festival (DIFF).It is directed by British-Nigerian Joseph Adejuwon Adesunloy and stars Mattieu Charneau and Aki Omoshaybi.
