Appearing on the Durban International Film Festival will be Of Good Report directed by Jahmil XT Qubeka.

Of Good Report tells the sombre tale of a small-town high-school teacher with a penchant for young girls. This third feature from Qubeka is a hypnotically engaging journey into the soul of a mentally-troubled man. Parker Sithole’s troubles start when he meets the stunning Nolitha Ngubane at the local tavern. An illicit affair follows their mutual attraction. There’s just one problem: the beauty queen is one of Parker’s pupils in his English class and just 16 years old.

Six months later, he moves on to another job. An intriguing and passionate South African homage to classic film noir. Filmmakers in attendance
