The film is a dramatised fictional narrative of romantic rivalry set within rural Zulu life and culture in the late 1920s.

IN AN EXCITING NEW and yet also continuous new direction CAROLINE TRETTINE joins - or rejoins - the OUTERGLOBE.CO.UK world. Way back in 1990 my former company Half the Sky presented an International Women's Day event with several great women artists including Caroline Trettinem whose music I have always loved, so I am very pleased to be linking with Caroline again on a new venture as she launches her unusual album GAY DEMO ... which was recorded completely inside one day.
Caroline Trettine has a brilliant career with her solo singer/songwriter/performer works and having been part of the amazing Blue Aeroplanes. There's a deep honesty and at the same time a great storytelling strength in her songs that take you on an emotional yet abstract journey where you arrive enriched somewhere you didn't know before.
WEDNESDAY 19th NOVEMBER CAROLINE TRETTINE at HACKNEY ATTIC 270 Mare Street, Hackney, E8 1HE 7.30pm £5 for entry and a surprise treat .... Finely and wryly crafted songs and superlative guitar sharing all the 'rainbow colours' of gay life in a sequence of beguiling songs. Poetry set to open. More HERE
