First-ever Namibian film to compete in Oscars 2022

IN a historic first for the Namibian film industry, The White Line will mark the first time a Namibian film will be entered in the Oscars 2022.

The White Line is set during the time of Apartheid, featuring an unlikely love between a Namibian woman and a South African police officer, a relationship unheard of at the time.

‘The White Line is a historical drama set in Namibia in 1963 at the time when it was still ruled by the South African Apartheid regime, until Namibia’s independence in 1990. It tells a story of a love against all odds between a Namibian woman and a white South African police officer during Apartheid,’ said Prudence Kolong of a Namibian movie consulting firm, Yanibes Consulting.

The White Line premiered at the 40th Durban International Film Festival in July 2019 and went on to screen at a host of international film festivals and gained numerous accolades.

It has won a host of awards across African film festivals and awards across the world movie highlights. The 100- minute historical drama features multiple languages Otjiherero, Afrikaans, English, and will have subtitles.
