    A Zulu film (by my Uncle Madoda) - outlines a journey of 2 children who head to the city of Durban to fulfill their (deceased) mothers dream.

    It is already out there, Sister Purple. International film festivals, mainly. It started off as a short film which won a Cannes festival award in 2003 - now developed into a full length film 2009. It would have to be something you consciously look out for - as it's clearly not mainstream Hollywood. yet ;)

    I'm simply glad to share a film about africa told by an african - in real time. And, of course, it's my ancestral area (Durban) and my uncle ;) .. so I'm kinda biased :lol: - but really - it's an amazing/realistic view into the life of a child without family - as so many are these days.

    :heart:
