Hello Beauties. I can’t remember when last I’ve been to the movies so when the opportunity came a long to go see The Whale Caller I grabbed it. I am also getting to take one of my lovely readers with her/his plus 1 with me. If you are in the Johannesburg area and will be able to get to Eastgate Mall Wednesday 27 September, read on. I also have the trailer down below.
Let’s Watch The Trailer
Zola Maseko’s The Whale Caller, is a fascinating story based on Zakes Mda’s bestselling novel. It is an enchanting, romantic comedy of sorts, told through lyrical and magical storytelling. The film is set against the backdrop of the stunningly beautiful Hermanus, on the West Coast of South Africa. The story follows The Whale Caller (Sello Maake ka-Ncube), a man who has long turned his back on humanity. It’s a heart – warming tale about his journey from misanthropic alienation to human connection, driven by a unique love triangle between him and Saluni (Amrain Ismail-Essop), the wispy sexy town drunk who harbours ideas of grandeur, and Sharisha, a southern right whale.
The Whale Caller was produced by award-winning film and media production company, Black Roots Pictures in association with The National Film and Video Foundation, the Department of Trade and Industry, The Industrial Development Corporation, Gauteng Film Commission and the Department of Arts and Culture.
