Zwelethu makes Young South Africans list
Congrats to Zwelethu Radebe (and Zandi Tisani from our sister company Arcade Content) on making the Mail & Guardian 200 Young South Africans list.
“Still in his twenties… Radebe has spent a busy four years directing commercials for both local and international agencies, shooting in nine countries across Africa and Europe for brands such as Castle Lager, Heineken Mastercard, Orange and Playboy,” the Mail and Guardian wrote. “In 2017, he won a Silver Apex Award for Creative Effectiveness for Strongbow, as well as Best South African Short Film at the Durban, Jozi, and Shnit film festivals, and Best Short Film at Zanzibar International Film Festival for ‘The Hangman,’ which has now won over 10 international awards… Radebe has a record of excellence… His future endeavours as a filmmaker are to be able to tell African stories that the continent can celebrate. His vision is to one day become influential in the global film arena to give hope to other aspiring African filmmakers, by showing them that a lot more is possible.”
