When Sibusiso Khuzwayo read Thabo Mbeki’s biography, “The dream deferred’ by Mark Gevisser he was inspired by a small story about a boy who read letters to villagers at a time in our country when it suited the regime to keep black South Africans illiterate. Sibusiso’s mind started churning imagining the challenges of being a ‘letter reader’ for a young boy. What powers could Sibusiso give the young boy? The result is a short film that crew and cast fell in love with and that was shot recently in the in a remote mountain village in the magical Drakensberg. Sibusiso graduated from Boston Media House with a diploma in television production. He was a writer on SABC drama series, “Thola” (Season 2) and has directed and edited various inserts for television shows.
