Sink proves that locals films don’t have to be awful. I spent some time with writer/director/producer Brett Michael Innes, as well as lead actresses, Anel Alexander and Shoki Mokgapa. The film tells the story of a Mozambican domestic worker, Rachel (Mokgapa), and how the death of her five-year old daughter at the home of her employers, the Jordaans, changes their lives forever. I spoke to the three about the unspoken social commentary of the film regarding race and class, the things that bridge divides, and all the positive attention Sink (read the film review) has garnered, both locally and internationally. I also asked some of those who saw the premiere, what they thought.
