Sarafina!

The plot centers on students involved in the Soweto Riots, in opposition to the implementation of Afrikaans as the language of instruction in schools. The stage version presents a school uprising similar to the Soweto uprising on June 16, 1976. A narrator introduces several characters among them the school girl activist Sarafina. Things get out of control when a policeman shoots several pupils in a classroom. Nevertheless, the musical ends with a cheerful farewell show of pupils leaving school, which takes most of act two. In the movie version Sarafina feels shame at her mother’s (played by Miriam Makeba in the film) acceptance of her role as domestic servant in a white household in apartheid South Africa, and inspires her peers to rise up in protest, especially after her inspirational teacher, Mary Masombuka (played by Whoopi Goldberg in the film version) is imprisoned.

Flenix Review:

Really fantastic movie, my favorite in drama category. This movie, which I free even refuse to compare with the other ones is the masterpiece created by my favorite director. I was so emotionally destroyed that I saw the entire movie three times on the internet almost in one go.

No movie ever has filled me with so much strange energy and gotten me so immersed in it. The story is really solid, the pacing is great, and all of the actors give great performances. The amount of details and little aspects of the movie that you can find years and years later is absolutely cool.

After watching, I really liked the mix of feelings. I uploaded this movie to Flenix, so everyone now can see it online for free.
