There’s Still Good, a 2016 University of Cape Town's Centre for Film and Media Studies (CFMS) graduation film, has officially been selected to screen at the 38th annual Durban International Film Festival in July 2017! The film is focalized through Will, a young black student who travels to the suburbs of Cape Town to meet his white boyfriend’s mother. It is a film about the danger of a single story, about how stereotypes can be damaging to personal relationships, especially in a post-apartheid, South African context.
Congratulations to Ciaran and crew!
