South Africa movies received a lot of recognition this year. Last week-end it was South African film "Of Good Report" turn to be under the spotlight. The South African movie has won the award for Best Feature Film at the Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF) in Nigeria.
Director Jahmil X.T. Qubeka says: “I am honoured that our work has been given such an accolade by AFRIFF. Rather than an award I prefer seeing it as a call to arms. As anindustry, Africa has much work to do".“Such recognition serves to fuel as well as affirm our intention and desire to help bring more global focus to African Cinema. We salute AFRIFF for the award and prize.”The movie is about an introverted high school teacher in rural South Africa who starts an obsessive affair with a pupil, with tragic consequences.
This film was briefly banned in South Africa in 2013
