An ac­tion-packed lo­cal movie night

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO CITY BEAT - Welling­ton Mak­wakwa

Thurs­day night was movie night in Zu­l­u­land. Zu­l­u­lan­ders flocked to the uThun­gulu Com­mu­nity Hall in Ng­welezana for the screen­ing of lo­cally pro­duced film, Umjon­dolo.

Writ­ten and di­rected by Dave Tem­b­son Mh­longo, the home­brew pro­duc­tion tells the fas­ci­nat­ing story of a street thug who risks his life to find his fa­ther.

The story line in­cludes ac­tion, ro­mance and sus­pense, which left the au­di­ence on the edge of their seats.

‘I can’t even be­gin to de­scribe the hap­pi­ness I ex­pe­ri­enced hav­ing my work viewed on an open plat­form. I am even more hum­bled by the sup­port of Zu­l­u­lan­ders who came out in num­bers to view this film.

‘I prom­ise to bring more lo­cal sto­ries to the peo­ple and grow the art of film­mak­ing in the area,’ said Mh­longo.
