iNtombi Nto


iNtombi Nto is a story about family bonds and heritage in South Africa. We enter the world of Nompilo Ngubane as she prepares for a traditional Zulu coming-of-age ceremony, uMemulo. Outspoken and university-educated, Nompilo must live a life of balance between Western ‘modernity’ and African tradition while maintaining her quirky and cheerful demeanour. This film is a must-see for anyone curious about other cultures, and anyone who knows that, at the end of the day, life is full of nuance and compromise.

Production by Nontobeko Gumede, Sarah Knight & Kellan Botha
