It seems as though lately South Africans are wonderfully taking up space on the film and television scenes internationally.
Following My Octopus Teacher winning an Oscar, and the likes of Thuso Mbedu being praised for the Underground Railway, South Africans in the film and television industry are shooting for the stars- and catching them.
Recently, a South African film has made it to Netflix’s top 10 on What’s On Netflix. The film, “I Am All Girls” starring Hlubi Mboya was at number two initially, and has now settled at number nine, GoodThingsGuy announced.
The film tells the story of a special crimes investigator forming a bond with a serial killer in order to bring down a global child sex trafficking institution. Truth prevails fiction as some parts are somewhat based on real events.

It’s incredible to see South Africans making moves of this magnitude, telling all sorts of stories from that of sea life to slavery in the Antebellum narrative, to crime mystery works. Our talents are diverse and truly so inspiring.
