Born Free Film Screening | ZULU LOVE LETTER

SEE EVENT DETAILS
ZULU LOVE LETTER (Ramadan Suleman, 100 minutes, 2004)
Thandeka has flashbacks.  She is a journalist who was imprisoned and tortured by the apartheid regime and is haunted by the memory of witnessing the police assassination of a young activist.  She is angry that the perpetrators have not been brought to justice.   She asks, “Aren’t ‘we’ in power now?” and “Has anything really changed?”  When the mother of the murdered activist asks Thandeka’s  help in finding out where her daughter’s remains were secretly buried, it offers a chance to confront and begin to repair the deep lingering traumas facing thousands of South Africans. The powerful  Zulu Love Letter is the first dramatic film dealing with these issues.


*Born Free is a term for people who have grown up since the end of apartheid
This program is presented in conjunction with our current exhibition After the Thrill is Gone: Fashion, Politics and Culture in Contemporary South African Art
