The South African premiere of Catching Feelings, Kagiso Lediga’s directorial debut, took place on 17 October at the 2017 Cape Town International Film market and Festival. The film had its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival (LAFF) in June and recently had its East Coast premiere in New York at Urbanworld Film Festival.

Catching Feelings was also written by, and stars Lediga. Set in a chic and middle class Johannesburg, it is a tale of how life, love and art intersect in uncontrollable ways. Catching Feelings follows a jaded academic (Lediga) and his journalist wife (Pearl Thusi), who have their lives turned upside down when a celebrated and hedonistic older writer (Andrew Buckland) unexpectedly moves into their urban Johannesburg home with them. Despite their love for each other, their relationship has hit a rut. Lacking excitement, the couple have settled into a routine that neither agrees with. Max now spends his time at dinners and events, musing over his frustrations with his key conspirator and sounding board, Joel (Akin Omotoso), who himself has his hands full with an illicit affair. The film also features Zandi Tisani, Precious Makgaretsa and Kate Liquorish.
