The film Letters of Hope, produced by AFDA Johannesburg writing lecturer Naledi Bogacwi’s was in competition with 12 films at the Durban International Film Festival 2019 and walked off with the Artistic Bravery Award. “As a young black female producer and writer in a space dominated by males, it means so much for your work to be given recognition.” says Naledi.

Set in 1976 apartheid South Africa, Letters of Hope tell the story of 16-year-old Jeremiah, who really wants to be a policeman and can’t understand why his father won’t let him. His father is the local postman and expects Jeremiah to take after him. When his father is killed, Jeremiah is exposed to the real reason why he did his job – he was operating a secret courier service that delivered letters from exile and prison. Will Jeremiah step up to take over from where his father left off – delivering letters of hope to the families of freedom fighters?

Congratulations to the cast and crew!!!
