with English subtitles Dir Gavin Hood UK/South Africa 2005 1hr 34mins With Chweneyagae, Mothusi Magano, Israel Makoe Tsotsi (which means ‘thug’ in the street language of South Africa’s townships) shoots a woman outside her home and steals her car, unaware, in his panic, that her baby is in the back seat or that this infant will mark the first stage of his path to redemption... Pumping with the high energy of Zola's 'Kwaito' music, Tsotsi is an extraordinary and gritty contemporary portrait of ghetto life set amidst the sprawling Johannesburg townships.
