Zulu Love Letter
Thandeka (Pamela Nomvete) is a former political activist and journalist with a broken marriage and a deaf-mute daughter. Hardened and cynical, her life is forced to change when she is approached by Me’Tau, an old woman who asks Thandeka to find her daughter’s remains. This is the first South African film to really grapple with the psychological scars left by apartheid on black people, and its director – Ramadan Suleman – and screenwriter – Bhekizizwe Peterson – are among the most important filmmakers working in South Africa today.
