Last week's launch of MOCA in the Middle was a great success. I hope everyone had a great time. I would love to hear your thoughts on the night. The movie was wonderfully made. And having Damian Lahey in the house made the evening.

Summer Cinema continues with Tsotsi. It is a story about the leader of an unruly, callous gang that resides in the segregated slums of Johannesburg, South Africa. With reckless abandonment the gang members harass, steal, and kill. One day, just for mere pleasure, Tsotsi decides to kill a woman and steal her car. It’s not long before he realizes that the woman had a child who is still in the back seat. Tsotsi reveals that she just may have a moral sense after all as she inexplicably decides not to abandon the baby, but rather to keep it. Indeed, this is an unfamiliar challenge. Tsotsi has never truly had another person to care for, let alone a small child.

This film won the Academy Award Winner for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year as well as a slew of festival awards. Check out the official site for more info.
