THE WOODEN CAMERA
In a Cape Town's nearby township, Khayelitsha, two 14-year-old friends, Madiba and Sipho, find a dead body as they are playing alongside the railroad tracks. With the body, they find a gun with one bullet and a video camera. Sipho takes the gun and Madiba takes the camera, which he puts inside a wooden toy to make the camera seem to be a not-working toy. These choices will drive the rest of their lives. Madiba films the world around him while siphon becomes a robber.... Directed by Ntshavheni wa Luruli, 92 min, South Africa, Drama, English.
