SA in the Oscar hunt
Congratulations to Darrell Roodt, who's South African film Yesterday has been nominated for an Oscar. I have not seen the film, but apparently it's about young woman (played by Sarafina's Leleti Khumalo) coming to terms with Aids in South Africa. Our fledgling fim industry is starting to get some good international praise, and let's hold thumbs for another morale boosting win.
