Deputy Minister Buti Manamela hosts special screening of Kalushi in Cape Town

DATE: 8 MARCH 2018
DEPUTY MINISTER BUTI MANAMELA HOSTS SPECIAL SCREENING OF KALUSHI IN CAPE TOWN
Deputy Minister in the Presidency, and Chairperson of the Presidential Task Team on Creative Industries, Mr Buti Manamela will host a special screening of the South African film, Kalushi. The long awaited film on the life of struggle hero, Solomon Mahlangu will be released in cinemas on 10 March 2017.
A select audience has been invited by the Deputy Minister for a special screening prior to the release. The audience consists of policy makers and legislators whose work in government and parliament affect the creative industry. Students from various institutions of higher learning in the city have also been invited.
The film Kalushi reminds us of the importance of telling South African stories, truthfully in South African voices. “It gives us joy to note that the film was made with an entirely South African cast by a South African Director” said Deputy Minister Manamela.
According the National Development Plan, the arts can foster values and facilitate dialogue and healing, thus restoring pride among African, Indian and coloured South Africans. Over and above that, the sector has a potential for growth and job creation.
This can only happen if the country supports and encourages the production of stories that facilitate healing, nation building and dialogue, as well as tell the stories of South Africans.
Part of the work of the Presidential Task Team on the Creative Industries is to ensure that there is synergy and seamless coordination among the available government funding vehicles for the arts. A film like Kalushi, is a case in point.
South Africans are encouraged to go out in their numbers and watch this important film about South Africa’s painful past.
Members of the media who would like to be part of the screening should contact: Matshepo Seedat, Media Liaison Officer to the Deputy Minister on
