SA film to be screened at Berlin Film Festival
'Happiness is a Four Letter Word' premiered in Rosebank on Thursday.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African feature film starring Khanyi Mbau called Happiness is a Four Letter Word will be screened at the Berlin International Film Festival this weekend.
The film made its local premiere on Thursday night.
Based on Cynthia Jele's award-winning novel, the romantic drama is set in Johannesburg, and focuses on three women and their love lives.
One of the leading ladies Mmabatho Montsho let us in on what you can expect.
"It's nice and tentative. It's something that every woman can watch and reflect about a certain stage in their life that they have been at or the questions they have asked themselves about what makes them happy."

Director Thabang Moleya says he looks forward to attracting local support for the film.
"What's important besides the backing that the film needs is that we need to adapt more of a culture as South Africans to watch movies."
It's received rave reviews so far from the likes of singer Lira who helped produce the soundtrack for the movie.
"It's very exciting for me and I think the story is very reflective of South Africa right now."
The film hits the big screen on 19February.
