Shaka iLembe + Panel Discussion: South African Cinema – Past & Present
In the late 18th century in the verdant land of the Nguni Kingdoms of South-east Africa, kings and queens, warriors and witches, spies, slavers, marauders, and traders struggle for power. One visionary leader, King Shaka of Senzangakhona, seizes the Zulu throne, determined to unite them all. Born out of wedlock to Nandi, a beautiful and willful Princess, and the famously handsome Zulu King Senzangakhona, we follow Shaka’s journey from outcast to King.
