The film’s director, Minky Schlesinger, was also recognised for her work. She accepted the award for the Best Picture in an African Language.The Department of Arts and Culture congratulated the winners via a statement released to the media, “There is no doubt that this is a giant leap for African filmmakers to tell the African story to the international community and South African filmmakers are making their mark as important contributors to this continental effort.”The film was part of the South African Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC) six-part mini series, Shakespeare in Mzansi.Classic Shakespearean tales were used tell South African stories, with Gugu and Andile as the modern adaptation of the touching love story, Romeo and Juliet.The local adaptation of William Shakespeare’s famous book tells the story of two star-crossed lovers who find themselves in the middle of a volatile political environment set in 1993.It’s the year before the historic 1994 democratic elections but politically motivated violence is tearing up the Thokoza township, as a result of a bitter divide between the Zulu and Xhosa tribes.Gugu Dlamini (Dhladhla) is a 16-year-old girl who hails from a Zulu family while 18-year-old Andile Mcilongo, comes from a loving, attentive Xhosa family. The community sees their love as the ultimate insult to tribal loyalty and are vehemently against their relationship.While violence and politics tear through their community, both teenagers remain loyal to their own love. Their respective families ban them from having a relationship, a decision which only fuels the two lovers.As in the classical tragic tale of Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, the two teenagers end up taking their lives, as they cannot bear the separation.Reacting to the news of the three awards, the film’s producer Bridget Pickering said it was well worth the sweat put into the project, “This is an incredible recognition for the years of hard work that the team put into developing the script.”Pickering said the awards were a testament to the team’s united spirit during filming, “Despite the challenge of a limited budget, the production crew and director Minky Schlesinger pulled out all the stops under testing shooting conditions in the Thokoza township in the middle of the rainy season to bring the film in on budget and still focus on creating a compelling story with strong visuals.”The Kenyan film From a Whisper proved to be another big winner, walking away with overall Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Original Soundtrack and Best Editing.Recognising African filmThe African Movie Academy Awards, or popularly known as the AMAA’s is currently in its fifth year.The 2009 awards were the biggest to date, with Hollywood stars including 2007 Academy Award winner Forest Whittaker, who won an Oscar for his portrayal as the notorious Ugandan leader Idi Amin in the film, The last King of Scotland.A-listers Danny Glover and Angela Basset attended the ceremony as honoured guests.The awards were conceptualised out of a need to recognise not only the stars of the film industry, but technical practitioners who work behind the scenes.According to the organisation, the AMAA’s are an “annual celebration of the brightest and the best in African movies. [The awards are about] class and style, blitz, glitz and razzmatazz.“It is the biggest gathering of movie makers across the African continent and the Diaspora.”Co-producer of the film Andile and Gugu Niel Brandt, expressed their appreciation for the awards, “The AMAA’s was a truly fascinating experience, with the selection of films exceptional, and of course the opportunity to engage with fellow filmmakers from across the continent is an opportunity not to be missed.“I strongly recommend that more South Africans submit their films to the AMAA’s in future years. We at Fireworx are certainly going to be using this opportunity to explore future co-production opportunities with filmmakers in Nigeria.”Do you have any comments or queries about this article: e-mail Khanyi Magubane at: [email protected] Useful linksAmma AwardsFire worxmediaNational Film and Video FoundationDepartment of Arts and cultureThe South African School of motion picture medium and live performance

What Would George Sa?NEW YORK (AP) — For the first time in the four decades of baseball’s modern economic era, the New York Yankees enter spring training without having signed a single free agent to a major league contract.Their only major additions were second baseman Starlin Castro, closer Aroldis Chapman and outfielder Aaron Hicks, all acquired in trades.“That’s a reflection of obviously our current commitments, which are substantial,” general manager Brian Cashman said before spring training’s start this week. “We’re really aggressive when we have a lot of money coming off. I think our history is we’re not aggressive we don’t have money coming off.”The Yankees started 57-42 in the first year following captain Derek Jeter’s retirement and led the AL East by seven games on July 29. Then they went 30-33 and finished six games back, falling into a wild-card playoff game against Houston they lost 3-0.“I believe as we enter 2016 we have a stronger roster than we finished in 2015,” Cashman said.New York’s batting average dropped from .274 in June and July to .236 for the remainder of the season. From Sept. 1 on, Alex Rodriguez hit .224, Jacoby Ellsbury .207, Brett Gardner .198 and Brian McCann .174.“Maybe, do you try to do something different next year in these situations? It’s something that I’ll think long and hard about over the winter,” manager Joe Girardi said.Here’s some things to look for when the Yankees open camp this week in Tampa, Florida:___ROTATIONMasahiro Tanaka (wrist, forearm), CC Sabathia (knee, alcohol rehab), Michael Pineda (forearm), Ivan Nova (recovery from Tommy John surgery) and Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) all missed time. Rookie Luis Severino is the only rotation candidate without health questions.“Our starting rotation’s health is really the key to the kingdom for us,” Cashman said.___TRIPLE-A SCRANTONThe trade of Adam Warren to the Chicago Cubs in the deal to acquire Castro weakened the Yankees’ starting pitching depth. Bryan Mitchell, Luis Cessa, Brady Lail, Chad Green and Tyler Cloyd could see callups in the event starters get hurt.___A-RODIn his return from a season-long suspension for violations of baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract, Alex Rodriguez was hitting .281 through games of Aug. 6 with 24 homers and 63 RBIs. He batted .186 with nine homers and 23 RBIs during the rest of the season.Cashman says Rodriguez, a former shortstop and third baseman, will remain a designated hitter.“Got to stop asking Alex questions. He’s not playing any position, anymore,” Cashman said. “He’s a DH. He’s a very productive DH, and for us to get maximum value of Alex Rodriguez, he’s going to only DH. And if we have to put him in the field somewhere, we’re in trouble.”___FIRST BASEMark Teixeira broke his shin on Aug. 17, and the switch-hitter’s absence was a factor in the slump. Rookie Greg Bird, who hit .261 with 11 homers and 31 RBIs in 157 at-bats as his replacement, is sidelined for this season following shoulder surgery.Now 35, Teixeira hit .255 with 31 homers and 79 RBIs, his strongest season since 2011.___CHAPMANAcquired from payroll-paring Cincinnati, Chapman has been designated as the Yankees’ closer, with Andrew Miller moving to a setup roll alongside Dellin Betances. Chapman is being investigated by Major League Baseball and could be disciplined under the sport’s new domestic violence policy, even though he has not been charged criminally. His eligibility for free agency would be pushed back until after the 2017 season if he is suspended without pay by MLB for more than 45 days.TweetPinShare0 Shares
