Event Originally produced by Cinga Productions in 2011.
Summary Based on true events and featuring music from South Africa's leading hip hop artists, Otelo Burning is a story of three South African teens that escape the turmoil of their township and discover the joy of surfing. When Otelo Buthelezi takes to the water for the first time, it's clear that he was born to surf, but as the group become stars on the surfing circuit, their bond begins to unravel and their competitiveness, especially Otelo’s romantic interest in New Year’s sister, breeds an unavoidable conflict. Tragedy strikes on the day that Nelson Mandela is released from prison, and Otelo is forced to choose between surfing success and justice. Jealousy, betrayal and political turbulence impact the lives of these young boys in ways that will change them forever. At its heart, Otelo Burning is a coming of age story about three young men and a nation exploring the different paths to freedom, and the will to survive in spite of insurmountable odds.
