An ex-soldier nervously attempts a return to swimming, while recalling a voicemail message from his estranged daughter.
Tsholofelo Tselaemang is a Journalism and Politics graduate from Rhodes University in Makhanda, working in the early stages of a career in filmmaking. She was raised in Kuruman, a small desert town in the Northern Cape province in South Africa. Her upbringing has informed her specific interest in the authenticity of the “documentary moment” and how it applies across the whole spectrum of audiovisual storytelling. She has recently directed two pieces of work in this regard, a short Super 8 film for the 2021 Straight 8 shootout, as well as a short film titled Hello Obakeng, which features an ex-soldier nervously attempting to make a return to swimming while recalling a voicemail message from his estranged daughter.
