Catch The White Line on Thursday at the Durban Film Festival

A story of hope borne from love grown in a forbidding time.

Having just premiered in the land of the brave, The White Line team has started touring and filming internationally. The team is currently in South Africa for the 40th edition of the Durban film festival. The White Line is an official selection of the Durban film festival and has premiered yesterday and will once again showcase on Thursday. The team in Durban consists of artist Micheal Pulse who is the writer, director Desiree Kahikopo and Girley Charlene Jazama the lead actress and producer.

The White Line follows the life of Sylvia Kamutjemo, a young woman working as a domestic worker who is pregnant and separated from the love of her life by an invisible white line that will divide an already divided country. Pieter de Wet, an Afrikaner police officer, is conflicted between his sense of duty to his job, race and the love of his life, Sylvia.

They are forced to make difficult choices that will have ripple effects in the future for their unborn child, Godfried Jr. Years later, having to pick-up the pieces of his mother’s shattered life, Godfried Jr, Sylvia’s son, sets out to find a father he never knew with the hope of giving his mother a chance to make peace with her past. The White Line is a riveting untold love story between a man and woman who do not see race and colour, subconsciously going against society’s norms and find solace in love in an era where love was restricted to you only loving your kind. The White Line will shed light on the untold love stories during Apartheid putting in motion what is predominantly now the new Namibia
