SHROPSHIRE RAINBOW FILM FESTIVAL 2017
This feature, produced by the Out In Africa Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, takes a look at South Africa through the lives and experiences of a cross section of Cape Town queers.
Twenty years into the new South Africa, ageing academic Mack looks for Salute, the young freedom fighter he sheltered and loved. Salute has moved on, he is Joe, married and with a child, rising in government and Party structures. Dez and Terri, a mixed-race couple married 20 years and adoptive parents, are the trailblazing lesbians of the new South Africa. But, have these freedoms guaranteed them happiness? Asanda, their 18 year old adopted daughter, is the poster child for South Africa's diversity but describes herself as "an experiment". She meets Shado, an enigmatic Tommy Boy from a township on the edge of Cape Town, and a different picture of the New South Africa emerges. Beautifully shot on locations in and around Cape Town in 24 days, with a stellar South African cast, with great local music and the work of South African artists on display.
