Sur la jacquette : Dans un bidonville de Johannesburg en Afrique du Sud, un jeune homme de 19 ans se fait appeler "Tsotsi" : "voyou", "gangster" dans le jardon des ghettos. Orphelin sans nom, sans passé, sans ambition, il vit au jour le jour à la fête d'un groupe de marginaux en proie à la violence et au chaos. Un soir, loin du bidonville, dans une banlieue aisée, Tsotsi sort son arme et agresse une femme avant de s'échapper au volant de sa voiture. Quelques instants plus tard, un bébé pleure sur la banquette arrière

L'adolescente Tsotsi e la sua banda muovono dal ghetto di Soweto - un milione di abitanti stipati alla periferia di Johannesburg - verso la città dei grattacieli, per le loro rapine e furti quotidiani. La vittima designata è un uomo di colore che, borseggiato nel metrò, accenna a una reazione: Butcher, uno dei complici di Tsostsi, lo uccide senza pietà. Boston è l'unico della banda a ribellarsi, in nome della dignità, a questa esecuzione inutile; per tutta risposta, Tsotsi lo picchia ferocemente, per poi fuggire da solo, nella notte di pioggia battente. Davanti a una villa elegante, Tsotsi ruba una macchina, senza accorgersi che sul sedile posteriore c'è un bambino di pochi mesi. Dopo qualche esitazione, Tsotsi prende il bambino con sé. È l'inizio di un percorso di redenzione. Osservando il piccolo - a cui Tsotsi darà il suo vero nome, David - il ragazzo ritorna con la memoria ai momenti più duri della sua infanzia (la madre malata, il padre estraneo e violento), e s'interessa, forse per la prima volta, alla sorte di qualcuno più sfortunato di lui, un barbone paralizzato incontrato in metropolitana. Poi, non sapendo come nutrire il bambino, Tsotsi costringe una ragazza madre ad allattarlo; e con lei intreccia una goffa quanto inedita amicizia. Il ragazzo decide poi di tornare a casa dei genitori del bambino per tentare una rapina; in realtà, quello che vuole è vedere la camera del piccolo e prendere alcuni dei suoi giocattoli. Il padre del bambino però reagisce male; e per evitare che Butcher gli spari, Tsotsi è costretto a sparare a sua volta, uccidendo il suo compagno. Tornato a casa, ormai abbandonato da tutti i membri della sua banda, Tsotsi cerca di recuperare l'amicizia di Boston, curando le ferite che lui stesso gli ha inferto e offrendosi di pagargli la fine degli studi per diventare maestro. Alla fine, Tsotsi si rende conto di dover restituire il bambino alla sua famiglia: e nell'arrendersi alla polizia c'è forse, per lui, l'inizio di una nuova vita

More than just a game by Junaid Ahmed( Visual )

"Told through the stories of five former prisoners, this is the story of political activists sent to Robben Island prison in the 1960s, who rise above their incarceration by creating a football league and finding an outlet for their passion and commitment to discipline through the Beautiful Game. In the energetic, dangerous urban landscape of the late 1950s, five youngsters are weeks or even days away from being arrested. Their backgrounds are as diverse as their personalities, but all share an activist's zeal and a desire to change the racist status quo. Anthony Suze is a hothead and athlete, a world away from the cool, introspective activism of Mark Shinners or the steady, stocky rugby-playing Lizo Sitoto. Others have come to the struggle in their own way: Sedick Isaacs, the impassive bomb-making schoolteacher; Marcus Solomons the non-aligned guerrilla. But all are targets of the state, and all are destined to spend their youth on Robben Island"--Container
