FWFC Proudly Presents...
COUNTRY: Zimbabwe, South Africa, UK

DIRECTOR: Mpumelelo Mcata
PRODUCER: Anna Teeman

SYNOPSIS: Black President is Zimbabwean artist Kudzanai Chiurai’s personal story, seen from the perspective of another African artist - cultural activist and BLK JKS guitarist, Mpumelelo Mcata - who is also battling with themes of identity, displacement, dislocation and significance. Tackling what should be every human being's politics: "Where in the world, who in the world and what in the world, am I?”, the filmmaker questions the responsibility of African artists in a globalised universe, where we maybe find ourselves "playing catch up" with the West as opposed to following our own paths.

FIRST WEDNESDAY FILM CLUB
ABOUT THE FILM CLUB
What started out as an informal gathering aimed at local film makers in 2004, hosted by Atlas Studios and ran by filmmakers John Barker and Ziggy Hofmeyr, has, one decade later, become South Africa’s best attended regular screening event outside the film festival circuit, and a reputable launching platform for new films, curated by filmmaker Akin Omotoso and writer Katarina Hedrén.
Today the First Wednesday Film Club’s reach extends far beyond the filmmaking community and includes a broader gathering of cinema lovers who are interested in watching films of all genres from across the world that usually are not available on the local circuit. For its unique offering of films and its chilled atmosphere with people from across the world, the film club has also become a "must attend” event for many visitors to Johannesburg.
