Join City Press for Thina Sob­a­bili

CityPress - - Trending -

As the Dur­ban In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val wraps up, City Press has a look at one of the best films of the 2014 fes­ti­val, the pow­er­ful and mov­ing Thina Sob­a­bili.

In this lo­cal award-win­ning fea­ture film, which was made on a shoestring bud­get with no state fi­nan­cial sup­port, di­rec­tor Ernest Nkosi shows us the com­plex re­al­i­ties of life in Johannesburg’s Alexan­dra town­ship.

The film tack­les the is­sue of sugar dad­dies and dives head­first into an ex­plo­ration of the sex­ual abuse of ba­bies, school­girls and mar­i­tal rape.
