Khalo Matabane’s films include Story of a Beautiful Country, Love in the Time of Sickness, Young Lions, and Conversations on a Sunday Afternoon, which won the Ecumenical Prize at the 2005 Berlin Film Festival and the Lionel Ngakane Prize at the Sithengi Film Festival. His work in cinema and television explores the emotional and political landscape of post-apartheid South Africa including the legacy of the Soweto uprising, the impact of AIDS on personal relationships, and the predicament of people from places as varied as Uganda, Palestine and South Korea, who flock to Johannesburg in search of refuge. Khalo Matabane will show clips from his work and talk about making films in contemporary South Africa.

The talk at OCAD coincides with the presentations of Matabane’s films Story of a Beautiful Country at the Regent Park Film Festival on Sunday, November 12, 2006 (for details visit www.regentparkfilmfestival.com) and Conversations on a Sunday Afternoon at Cinematheque Ontario on Wednesday, November 15, 2006 (for details visit www.cinemathequeontario.ca).
