When their three-day-old baby goes missing from Groote Schuur Hospital, the event comes to define the lives of Celeste and Mourne Nurse. Over the course of the next 17 years, they move through a relentless cycle of hope and despair, never giving up the search for Zephany, their missing daughter. When their second daughter Cassady joins a new school and finally finds her missing sibling living just a few kilometres away, it seems like the Nurse family’s prayers have been answered – but things are never that simple. Imbued with the feel of a forensic thriller, Girl, Taken provides a full account of a story that has long occupied South Africa’s imagination, allowing all those involved to tell the story. The result is a rich and suspenseful film that doesn’t search for easy answers, but acknowledges the full complexity of life and families.

The Radical introduces us to 54-year-old Muhsin Hendricks, a South African man believed to be the first openly gay imam. Hendricks leads a devoted group of queer muslims, having started an organisation to support the LGBTQI+ community and running a personal empowerment programme that helps muslims reconcile their sexuality with their faith. The film provides first-person accounts of being and growing up queer as a South African Muslim in a society caught between the liberalism of its constitution and the conservativeness of its cultures and history. The film chronicles individual journeys to queer acceptance, as a diversity of muslim people negotiate these tensions. The film also provides an in-depth exploration of homosexuality in the context of Islamic theology and its texts, and challenges the orthodox interpretations.

This unique feature-length documentary consists entirely of three minutes of amateur home movie footage which briefly documents a Jewish community in Nasielsk, Poland, just a year before the Nazis invaded the town, eventually killing nearly everyone we see in the grainy moving images. By zooming in – sometimes literally, sometimes metaphorically – to the footage on a granular level, the film offers a forensic excavation of both the contents of these three minutes of film and the nature of film itself, how it has changed us and the ways we see and record history.

George
Bookings Open
 
This insightful chronicle of the life of legendary human rights advocate, George Bizos, is a timely reminder of where we have come from and how we got to where we are as a country. From his early friendship with Nelson Mandela, to his central involvement in the Rivonia Trial and numerous other seminal legal events, to his role in the authoring of the South African constitution, Bizos’ life was so intimately linked to key political events that this film should be required viewing for anyone interested in the history of the country. Importantly, the film also acknowledges the failures inherent in 21st century South Africa and that the political freedom that Bizos, Mandela, and so many others fought for has little meaning without economic freedom. Made with remarkably broad access to Bizos’ intimates and colleagues, and rich with archival footage, George Bizos Icon is a highly engaging film about one of South Africa’s great humanists.

Set in the Italian town of Matera, where both Pasolini and Gibson’s films about the life of Christ were shot due to its visual similarity to Jerusalem, The New Gospel reframes the biblical narrative in the context of a profoundly unequal 21st Century and reclaims Jesus as a social revolutionary. Director Milo Rau reprises the elegance and power of Pasolini’s film but melds its narrative with the lives of the migrant farmworkers who live on the edge of Matera in inhumane conditions. Led by political activist Yvan Sagnet, the workers are fighting for the rights of migrants who came to Europe across the Mediterranean, only to be virtually enslaved in the tomato fields of Southern Italy. The director and his team return to the social origins of the gospels, presenting a passion play for our global civilization. The result is a resounding call for solidarity with the poorest of the poor and a heartfelt plea for a more just and humane world.

Music

Music is My Life provides an engaging account of the life of Joseph Shabalala and his rise to international fame with his band Ladysmith Black Mambazo. The film covers the full breadth of the singer’s life, from his early years in rural South Africa to the band’s global success in the wake of their contributions to Paul Simon’s massively successful Graceland – which, despite breaking rank with the cultural boycott, went on to become one of South Africa’s most loved albums. As well as the story of that album, including archive footage from the recording sessions, the film also chronicles the complex history of isicathamiya music, in terms of both the political and musical forces which helped to form it. Locating Shabalala's music at the heart of the South African experience, the film is an engaging tribute to one of the country’s most distinct musical idioms and the man with the beautifully resonant voice who made it famous.

Navalny
Bookings Open
 
Navalny provides an account of Alexei Navalny, Russia’s former opposition leader, in the wake of his poisoning in August 2020. Made with remarkable access to its subject and his family and colleagues, the film follows Navalny as he recuperates in Berlin and unravels the at times ludicrously stupid plot to kill him, assisted by the forensic skills of the citizen-powered investigative unit Bellingcat. The result is a documentary like no other, one that is far more thrilling and suspenseful than most Hollywood thrillers, and utterly of our times. Fueled by Navalny’s freewheeling intelligence and charisma as well as his canny understanding of both mainstream and social media, the film’s power extends beyond its subject matter, providing deep insights into the ways in which technology and geopolitics intersect in our digitally accelerated world.
