Bonang Matheba’s documentary, Public Figure, debuted in Manchester a few months ago to critical acclaim. And now after months of waiting, we can finally see the documentary in cinemas right here in Mzansi.
Public Figure will be premiering at the 21st Encounters South African International Documentary Festival which is taking place from 6 – 16 June in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Screenings of Public Figure will take place:
- Sunday, 16 June at 20h30 at V&A Nouveau in Cape Town
- Saturday, 15 June at 19h30 and 20h30 at Rosebank Nouveau in Johannesburg
The Rosebank screening will have a marquee event after the screening with a House of BNG tasting and Q&A session with Bonang and director and executive producer Brian Corso.
The documentary which was also co-produced by Bonang, features B as well as actress Rose McGowan, internet provocateur Sebastian Tribbie and an appearance by Denzel Washington.
About the documentary, Bonang said, ‘Influencer culture pervades every aspect of modern life. For better or worse and everything in between, I really wanted to be part of this film to show the world, especially my fans in South Africa, the scope and impact of social media and the personas we let into our lives every day.
You will be able to buy or rent Public Figure internationally from 18 June on Amazon and iTunes.
