Personally I think its good to explore topics that have relevance to the lives of audiences everywhere, but the trick is to do it subtly through plot and character, not to mistake “issue” for storytelling. Story is king!

My short film Mier “The Ant” has been entered into several film festivals, with selections in; New York African Film Festival on the 12-17 May 2022, attended in person by the producer Rafiq Samsodien who joined panels, Q&A’s, the premiere of the short film in front of a live audience, and networked with delegates at the US/SA Consulate in Manhattan, NY. The goal was to secure co-productions, sales agents and hopefully secure distribution for the feature film. The short has also been selected by Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) and appears in the Content Shop at DFM 2022.
