Zulu Love Letter
During the State of Emergency in the late 1980s, Thandeka Khumalo witnessed the assassination of Dineo, a young activist, by government security forces. Thandeka was imprisoned and tortured by police while she was pregnant. Her daughter was born deaf and mute as a result. Thandeka is approached by Dineo's mother who wishes to enlist her help in finding Dineo's body for a proper burial. This means finding the people responsible for her murder and testifying against them. The film reflects on what millions endured during the apartheid period and critiques the post apartheid society that seems to forget those most hurt by it.
