New South African Flic: Tsotsi

Synopsis: Set amidst the sprawling Johannesburg township of Soweto -- where survival is the primary objective - "Tsotsi" traces six days in the life of a ruthless young gang leader who ends up caring for a baby accidentally kidnapped during a car-jacking.

Tsotsi is already being compared to my favorite all-time flic, City of God. I believe it's a limited release film. Check it out if you're able, sounds interesting.

Thanks Supa--as always your culture involvement runs deep. Thanks for the up's. Have you heard of the Black Covenant with America ?http://www.covenantwithblackamerica.com/
I have been following the tour on CSPAN, and I must say that the panel is well versed and opinionated about the the "New Deal" for Black people in America. The Honorable Minister Louis Farakhan and Harry Belafonte set the stage on fire! Check it out
