Supa Sister on Flics: Yesterday
Synopsis: HBO Films presents a watershed film for South Africa, and a film of many firsts. Yesterday is the first international feature film ever shot in the Zulu language, and is the first South African film to receive an Oscar® nomination (in the category of Best Foreign Language Film). Equally important, Yesterday was made with the support of Nelson Mandela and the Nelson Mandela Foundation, marking an important new commitment by Mandela (and South Africa) to attempt to erase the long-standing stigma of AIDS in a country that has been ravaged by it, primarily from lack of knowledge about the disease.
Supa Sister missed the premiere last night on HBO, but will surely check it out. Hit me with any feedback if you happened to catch it.
