For his feature debut filmmaker Zee Ntuli went full out to craft Hard to Get, a crime/romance that rarely pauses for breath as it barrels along the South African criminal streets. Ntuli joins us to discuss his desire to break from the past and create an entertaining popcorn film that was foremost for and spoke to South Africa’s young black audiences.
Hard to Get (2014)
A handsome young womanizer from a small community has the world at his feet when he falls for a sexy, reckless young thief.
I think South Africa has predominantly had a preoccupation with telling stories about yesterday’s South Africa.
