“Hertzog Boulevard is a tragedy and a love story, but it’s also a very funny reminder of the fragility of our ideals. Who are the forgotten and over-looked people who live on Cape Town’s streets, how do they get up every morning to spend another day searching for food in dustbins and begging for money to buy a drink, and how different are they really to those of us who spend our days in the more acceptable parts of the city? Lazarus has just returned to his old stomping ground after spending time in Pollsmoor prison for attempted murder. While incarcerated he converted to Christianity and became a preacher, but back on the streets he is forced to question whether he really changed as much as he thought he had. He is re-discovered by his oldest friend, Dorcas, who is a harsh realist, but fiercely protective of her long-time partner. Together they share the tragedy and humour that always reside so close together for Cape Town’s bergie”

Directed By James Ngcobo
