The film Call Me Thief or Noem My Skollie has made its UK premiere as part of London’s Film Africa Festival. The film’s Director Daryne Joshua was in the UK to promote the film, which is gaining international recognition.
Joshua’s debut film was nominated as South Africa’s submission for Oscar’s foreign language film last year.
Call Me Thief is based on the true story of John Fredriks
It is being recognised in the UK as a strong debut from a director who is now firmly on the one to watch list.
Call Me Thief spent 12 years in the making to perfect the script.
Joshua hopes it will provide inspiration for those from his own community and internationally too.
