OTELO BURNING 
by  Sara Blecher   

a narrative film the New York Times calls "a coming-of-age story with the grand sweep of history as its background." 
 
oteo new 
Otelo Burning tells the story of a group of township kids who discover the joy of surfing.  Set in 1989, 16-year-old Otelo Buthelezi is forced to choose between surfing success and justice. This beautifully made, insightful and entertaining film captures a turbulent time in the history of South Africa. Filmed in Zulu with English subtitles, the film also includes music from South African Hip Hop artist Reason.
