The Call
Narrative Short
10 minutes / 2019
Directors: Iban Bester, Zinhle Zulu
Country: South Africa
The story begins in the past when a young Zulu woman named Thina is at her lobola ceremony (Zulu marriage ceremony) being promised to her husband. The narrative cuts to the present tense at a house party where we see Thina and her fiancé Jade dancing together. We come to realize through flashbacks that Thina ran away from her lobola and has not told her family/father about Jade and that she is gay.
