SA Musical Film Starring Khabonina Qubeka and Aubrey Poo Needs Donations

An Indiegogo campaign is running to raise finishing funds for She is King, a South African musical film. There are just 21 days left to contribute, get involved and be a part of this story.

A local team has shot a film that celebrates African culture, history and music in a contemporary, fun film. It's a timeless story of a talented young woman traveling to Joburg, City of Gold, to become a star.

It features some of South Africa's best known music, a brilliant cast of characters in a universal, warm story. They have a committed local distributor and some international interest, but they need funding to finish the film.

These independent filmmakers need US$ 100 000 (thats around 1.4M rands) to complete the film and ready it for international sales.

Watch the teaser here:



One of their goals on this movie was to show off South African music and they have tracks from Grammy winners Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Juluka, Brenda Fassie and a number of traditional Zulu musicians.

They claim “Our movie is a passion project. Made for our daughters and our nieces and every young woman who has ever had a dream.”

The film stars Khabonina Qubheka and Aubrey Poo.
