Τίτλος: Ο γάμος της Τζόαν και της Βέρνε / Joan and Verne’s Wedding


Πλοκή: March 2008 – Cape Town, South Africa. Making history, Joan and Verne get married. Their wedding is the first same sex traditional Jewish marriage carried out by a Rabbi in South Africa. South Africa is only the fifth country world wide to recognise the rights of gays and lesbians to get married with the same equality and dignity as heterosexual couples. Be a part of this amazing “simcha” (joyous occasion) which, for those there: siblings, children, grandchildren, friends and family, was the perfect celebration of an 18 year relationship – now formally consecrated. Laugh, cry, learn and be enthralled by this emotional and historic traditional Jewish wedding, with a twist.

Τίτλος: Τρόπος ομιλίας / A Kind of Language

Πλοκή: Cape Town is not all overseas visitors and cosmopolitan chic-ness – beneath the facade of wealth is an underworld of street life, struggle and hustle.
Phybia Dlamini’s sophisticated, well-acted, beautifully filmed drama, based on the plays Thirteen Cents and The Quiet Violence of Dreams by K. Sello Duiker, follows the lives of a clutch of Cape Town’s unheralded underdogs. A man, recently out of Valkenberg, lives in a halfway house and battles a terrible past and his feelings for a flat mate. A street child, on the verge of becoming a teenager, does what he needs to stay alive and a prostitute tries to escape her brutal pimp. Their lives intersect with intriguing consequences.

Τίτλος: Μπάσκετ και Μαθηματικά / Basket and Maths (“Basket et Maths”)

Πλοκή: A touching take on falling in love with your best friend
What’s a gay boy to do when he’s fallen in love with Cedric, his officially straight best friend? For that in a nutshell is the touching scenario on offer here, only one that gets complicated when the object of Jerome’s affection seemingly cannot decide which team to bat for, kissing him gay style during their time spent revising maths together, only to rebuke him in school when lessons switch to basketball. Contemplating coming out to his parents and unsure of whether sexually confused Cedric feels the same way about him, life sure isn‘t as easy as doing basketball or mathematics for our boy. Or should that be, being straight or gay.
