Otelo Burning by Sara Blecher

DFA member, Sara Blecher's Otelo Burning will open the Durban International Film Festival in the third week of July 2011.

Somewhere between City of God and Blue Crush OteloBurning is a coming of age story set against the backdrop of Nelson Mandela’s release from prison. It's an emotional story of kids in the township learning to surf. It's a story of the explosive potential for change at the time of apartheid's end - all seen through a child's eye.
