A Million Colours, the $6.5million South African human rights epic continues it’s long festival life in San Francisco
The South African film “A Million Colours” was one of the many classic and brand new films from the UK, Ireland, Australia and South Africa that were screened and celebrated at the Mostly British Film Festival in San Francisco recently. The film, directed by Peter Bishai and starring Wandile Molebatsi (“Skeem”) and Stelio Savante (“What If,” “My Super Ex-Girlfriend,”) has been a festival favorite at the Hollywood Black Film Festival, the Montreal World Film Festival, the Pan African Film & Arts Festival and the AFI: New African Films Festival and the Atlantic Film Festival and was inspired by the stories of two leading film stars in late 1970s South Africa, Muntu Ndebele and his friend Norman Knox. The film was produced by Andre Pieterse (“Winnie”) and Michael Mosca (“A Sunday in Kigali”).
