The Hyderabad Film Club, in collaboration with the Federation Of Film Societies Of India is presenting the South African Film Festival from the 21st to the 23rd February, at Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet. A total of 6 films will be screened during the 3-day festival.
Mama Jack is the first film to be screened at 5pm on the 2nd day of the film festival. Directed by Gray Hofmeyr, the film has Leon Schuster, Alfred Ntombela, Mary-Anne Barlow, Lionel Newton and Shaleen Surtie-Richards.
Mama Jack is the story of Jack Thereon, an ordinary person, working on a film set. His movie director boss hates his guts. In a bid to get rid of Jack, the director spikes his drink at a glamorous function, and before long, Jack has unwittingly offended all the attending dignitaries, ruined the function, and got himself on the wrong side of law.
Now on the run and desperate, Jack turns to his friend for help and emerges disguised as a black woman, Mama Jack. Mama Jack soon finds 'herself' employed by the director's fiancée, and begins to fall in love with her. A series of deceptions and misunderstandings pile up and comic mayhem results!
Entry to the film festival is free. Please contact Bh S S Prakash Reddy of the Hyderabad Film Club at 2373-0841/93910-20243 for further details.
