Gugu and Andile (2008)
Two youngsters find a common bond despite their different heritage in this drama from director Minky Schlesinger. In 1993, South Africa is on the verge of throwing off apartheid, but freedom is still just a faint promise on the horizon, and infighting between the various townships is often brutal and violent as long-standing tribal rivalries are played out. Gugu (Lungelo Dhladhla) is an eighteen-year-old boy of Xhosa heritage who meets Andile (Litha Booi), a girl of sixteen who is Zulu. Despite their differences, Gugu and Andile become infatuated with one another, and they fall under the influence of the heady joys of first love. But while the teenagers are able to ignore the offenses of the past, their families cannot, and their romance fans the flames between people on both sides of the tribal divide. Originally produced for television, Gugu and Andile later received a theatrical release and was an official selection at the 2010 Rotterdam International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi … More
