Khalo Matabane has directed numerous documentaries, drama series, campaigns, commercials, has taught about cinema and politics at schools, and completed his first dramatic feature film State of Violence in 2010 (shown to critical acclaim in Toronto and Berlin). Set in Johannesburg, it is the story of a man whose wife is killed in what seems like a random act of violence. The protagonist goes on a journey to search for the killers, only to find out that he is the son of a man he killed in the 1980’s during the struggle. Currently, Khalo is producing a new body of work: a feature film called A Letter to Nelson Mandela. The film seeks to find out if Mandela’s philosophies of forgiveness, reconciliation and freedom, resonate in a world that is plagued with injustice and social inequalities. He will interview a global group of thinkers, activists and artists.
