Sarafina! Magical, memorable musical to celebrate SA youth

SARAFINA, Mbongeni Ngema, 1992

THE legacy of the South African youth activists of 16 June 1976 will be honoured with the broadcast of the iconic film SARAFINA! on e.tv and its sister channel eMovies this weekend.

The film follows Sarafina (Leleti Khumalo) who, like other young students of the time, adopted a campaign of resistance against the police presence in their schools. She imagines the support of her role model, Nelson Mandela, and finds an ally in her teacher, Mary Masombuka (Whoopi Goldberg), who supports the students in their rebellion against the police presence.

‘We are proud to have made SARAFINA! as a tribute to the courage and indomitable spirit of the youth of 1976 and are delighted to be partnering with e.tv to share this inspiring story over forty years later,’ said the movie’s producer, Anant Singh.

‘It is one of South Africa’s most memorable films, and we are pleased to be able to commemorate a significant day in our nation’s history.

We are committed to sharing local stories that celebrate and reflect on our country’s journey and SARAFINA! tells a powerful one,’ said Marlon Davids, MD of e.tv channels.
