Five Tiger (2020)
Filmic, with scarce dialogue and a strong narrative thread, Five Tiger reveals the story of a woman who finds herself in a transactional relationship with her pastor. “Five Tiger” is a colloquial term for fifty South African Rand. The film is based on a conversation the filmmaker had with a sex worker while filming a TV series outside of Johannesburg. The award-winning film is Nomawonga Khumalo’s writing and directing debut and starring Amanda Seoka. Official Selection at Sundance 2021 and Durban International Film Festival, Five Tiger was shot by one of South Africa’s cinematographers with an international career, Rick Joakim.
