100 countries, 10 million households – that’s the reach of the new Julius Malema doccie that Al Jazeera will air on April 26.
The 48-minute film is titled Julius vs the ANC, directed by renowned Cape Town filmmaker Rehad Desai.
Desai would be the same man who made the now infamous Marikana doccie (watch that in full HERE), so you know the new Julius doccie isn’t going to muck about.
The Sunday Times reports:
It follows the charismatic leader’s evolution from being the star of the ANC to leading a new political movement after he fell out with Zuma.
Desai…said Malema represented the younger generation who are the future of the country.
“In my mind Julius is a hero, a flawed hero, which makes him more human,” Desai said. “This story indicates that we’ve got to begin to learn from why and how we make decisions around leadership.”
Whilst there is no trailer out for Julius vs the ANC, we can take a look at the trailer for The Giant Is Falling, another Desai doccie that shines a light on politics here at home.
…The Giant Is Falling, was named best South African film at the Joburg Film Festival last year and has been screened at seven other festivals, including the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam and the One World international human rights documentary film festival.
As you can imagine, that trailer is a real kick in the nuts for Zuma:
That cackle is enough to make my blood boil.
