The White Line is selected to represent Namibia at the third Joburg Film Festival in November!
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. Another milestone to add to the film’s accolades is the news about the film to screen at the coming Joburg Film Festival.
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.
Joburg Film Festival and MultiChoice partner to showcase film talent The Joburg Film Festival and the MultiChoice Group have embarked on an exciting collaboration to create South Africa’s preeminent film festival. The festival, which is set to showcase the finest films from more than 16 countries, aims to curate, elevate and celebrate the best stars and films from across Africa and the world and runs from 19 to 24 November 2019.
Inspired by the establishment of DISCOP AFRICA, the festival is now in its third year and was born out of the desire to create an independent platform that not only tells Africa’s stories but showcases and rewards the continent’s and international excellence in film. This film festival is the only one on the African continent that features specially curated content and aims to elevate and celebrate the best stars and curated films from across the African continent and the globe.
