Another one! The White Line film grabs another accolade.
Having only premiered recently, airing at the Durban Film and scooping three awards at the Namibia Film and Theatre Awards, the White Line seems to be achieving greatness over and over. Having just celebrated a milestone of screening at the coming Joburg Film Festival recently, the film this weekend walked away with the title best cinematographer at the 7th African Emerging Filmmakers Awards.
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.
The white line has won three awards at the Film and theatre awards, it was nominated for seven awards at the film and theatre awards. It was nominated in three categories at the African Emerging Filmmakers Awards, where it won the best cinematography at the same awards event.
