The award-winning South African film “Bunny Chow’ had its Kwa Zulu Natal premiere at the Kwa Mashu Film Festival on Friday, 8 December. Director John Barker and three of the movie’s stars, David Kibuuka, Joey Rasdien and Kagiso Lediga attended the screening.
’Bunny Chow’ follows the wacky journey of three stand-up comedians as they make their way to the Oppi Koppi rock festival. Egos run high and careers are at stake as Kags, an arrogant womaniser, Joey – a devout yet conflicted Muslim – and Dave, a somewhat innocent and naive Ugandan immigrant with aspirations of “making it big”, embark on a road trip to South Africa’s biggest annual rock festival.
KAFF (Kwa Mashu African Film Festival) is a community-based film festival which specifically focuses on screening African films. The programme includes screenings of South African films, documentaries, and film development workshops for communities in and around the Kwa Mashu area.
