Zulu Wedding Official Trailer Released!
Unashamedly romantic, glamorous and hilarious all at the same time, the film pays loving tribute to the richness of African culture. It acknowledges the, sometimes schizophrenic, reality of many urban South Africans who live sophisticated modern lives which are nonetheless shaped by their family cultures, traditions and expectations.
Feisty choreographer, LU “LUNGILE”, portrayed by Nondumiso Tembe, will do anything to avoid falling in love. Even more, to avoid going home to South Africa, where she’s traditionally engaged to a king. However, when she meets her soulmate Darrin Dewitt Henson’s TEX she is forced to confront the tradition she’s been running away from since the death of her parents, when she turned 18, and the ancestral debt they left her.
She comes up with a plan to confront the King and convince him to forget about her, but when she prevails upon handsome royal advisor ZULU (Pallance Dladla), to help her get into the Royal Compound, he proves to be a dangerously seductive charmer, one who seems to represent all the best aspects of her background.
Tex, NATE, Lou’s eccentric traffic officer sister MABO, Makgano Mambolo, and her tell-it-like-is alcoholic best friend SAM (Bubu Mazibuko), set off to rescue her while the shifty Unle Phineas played by Jerry Phele, his sexy wife Kelly Khumalo’s Yvonne and The Basotho 10, lead by TKZee Family’s Gwyza, stay behind. The stage is set for hilarity, hi-jinks and heartbreak.
With an effervescent screenplay by Julie Hall and stunning cinematography by award-winning Lance Gewer of Tsotsi fame, Zulu Wedding promises a lush, playful, escapist experience which should appeal to fans of films like Happiness is a Four-letter Word and My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
