Description

Trailer for Otelo Burning.

Defying the law, three Zulu boys escape their harsh township lives through the joy of surfing.

Overcoming his traditional fear of the water, Otelo Buthelezi discovers a natural talent, finding freedom on the waves. But in the turmoil of a country on the cusp of change, he is dragged down into a spiral of jealousy and violence. As Nelson Mandela finally walks free, Otelo must choose between two worlds.

Somewhere between City of God and Blue Crush, Otelo Burning is based on real events. It is a moving drama of courage, love, betrayal and hope.
