"Fanie Fourie's Lobola" Is A Feel Good South African Film Released Now
This is a wonderful South African indie feature I really like. Link to trailer below.
South African comedy in which newcomer actress Zethu Dhlomo
shines, Fanie Fourie’s Lobola
won the 2013 Seattle Film Festival Best Film and Best Comedy at
Best Comedy at the Sedona one, both audience awards.
Direcred by Henk Pretorius Lobola
is a feel good film that lightheartedly addresses cultural divides and an evolving culture in stunning hilarity and beautiful production. This love
story gives viewers a taste of African cinema, bringing together comedy and romance as young Afrikaner, Fanie Fourie (Eduan van Jaarsveldt)
, and beautiful Zulu, Dinky Magubane,
fall in love.
After being presented with a dare at the cake shop, Fanie makes his first moves on Dinky after he is urged to invite her as a date to his brother’s
wedding. Marking the beginning of a tumultuous love story, this film goes on to break down traditional cross-cultural barriers, emphasizing the power of
love. As Fanie and Dinky quickly begin to fall head over heels in love, their lives go awry as their loved ones struggle to come to an agreement on the
Lobola – the traditional Zulu bride price.
