On Sunday August 7, 2005, the first of several special screenings of the new South African film, Zulu Love Letter, will take place at Southgate Ster Kinekor for members of Khulumani Support Group. The Film Resource Unit is partnering Khulumani Support Group, the national membership organisation of victims and survivors of apartheid gross human rights abuses, in these screenings.

The film tells a story of two women who set out to ?find? their daughters - one who disappeared at the hands of security agents of the former government and the other whose career as a journalist covering events of the struggle, took her away from daily involvement in the life of her daughter who is hearing-impaired. The stories resonate with those of many of the members of Khulumani Support Group, who know first-hand and continue daily to deal with the consequences of the events that shattered their everyday lives.

Khulumani Support Group welcomes Zulu Love Letter for highlighting and honouring the role of women in the struggle for social justice in South Africa, especially during National Women?s Month. Women have contributed for decades to the struggle for social jusitce in South Africa, starting with their organising of the 1913 women?s march against the Land Act, less than a year after the formation of the South African Native National Congress, that became the African National Congress.

In the course of the ensuing decades, women in South Africa have worked continuously to expand the terrain of struggle to include the full and equal recognition and valuing of women and men and of their contributions to public life in South Africa. It is these unsung heroines who have provided the nurturing and support of families and communities through times of great darkness and difficulty.

Khulumani Support Group endorses this film for its realistic portrayal of the situations that continue to affect survivors - the issues of dealing with not knowing what happened to a loved one; of having a loved one permanently injured; of losing breadwinners in families. This moving film portrays the lives of many survivors in South Africa as we continue as a nation to confront our difficult past and come together to heal each other through learning about each others? stories.

A fundraising special screening will be held at the Rosebank Cinema Nouveau on Thursday, August 11 at 19:30 and Khulumani Support Group screenings in association with the Film Resource Unit will follow on August 18 in Cape Town; August 25 in Durban and August 31 in Port Elizabeth.

Don?t miss the opportunity of seeing an authentic South African story.
