In cinemas now: Kalushi
The remarkable story of Solomon ‘Kalushi’ Mahlangu, written and directed by Mandla Dube, this local film recently won the Rapid Lion award at the 2016 Rapid Lion International Film Festival. At a time when youth uprisings were at their height, the young ‘Kalushi’ used his arrest and trial to speak for the masses who were refused the opportunity to speak for themselves. Sentenced to death at the age of 23, despite being innocent of the accusations against him, he refused to be silenced.
