Yesterday

c-0332Have you ever seen a film in the Zulu language?

Yesterday is the first one ever to be made all the way back in 2004 by Darrell Roodt, the director of Cry, The Beloved Country. It’s about a beautiful woman named Yesterday who works very hard to get some very bad news. Then what happens? Then she deals with it.

Honestly, it doesn’t really matter what happens, though her story is important. The meat of the matter is this sunny, brilliant woman who moves through her life with surety and grace the belie the complete impossibility of her tasks. I think you will fall in love with her. I certainly did.

    Is this movie out now, or is it airing on HBO? I’m thinking I might try to use this as an Awareness Night idea…

    It’s on DVD, it was made (and I presume released in theatres) in 2004. I got it from Netflix.

    Yes this is a truly wonderful film. I use it in my subject on Film and Critical Pedagogy. It represents and brings to the fore many things which makes it such a good vehicle to use for discussion and to learn from. At its heart is the choice of life, of the future, it is a film of great optimism of the spirit.
    It is not hard to get from video stores and from book/DVD stores and online.
