Local hitmaker, Busiswa, is going to give her fans and admirers a look at her life and the journey that brought her to heights she can be proud of.
The singer's biopic, Busiswa: An Unbreakable Story, will premiere at the upcoming Africa Rising International Film Festival (ARIFF) on 27 November in Newtown, Johannesburg. The festival itself runs for four days from 26 to 29 November.
Briefly.co.za gathered that a press release states that the film will take viewers back in time and "explore the complex conditions that thrust a modest young girl from Umtata into the boisterous voice that reverberates through our speakers alongside Beyonce Knowles on The Gift, in arguably one of the most important moments in modern music history".
According to ZAlebs, Ayanda Sithebe, the festival organiser, said they are thrilled to have Busiswa's film as part of the event.
He added that the focus of the festival is inclusion and telling the story of a woman who is changing the game is something to look forward to. The film will premier on the opening night of the fest.
Busiswa: An Unbreakable Story is narrated by Busiswa herself as reported on by City Buzz.
