Shaka iNkosi Yamakhosi, a decorated short film, produced by homegrown creative film production company, PacinaPictures has recently been announced as an official selection at this year’s prestigious Capri Movie International Film Festival from 15 – 18 September 2021

Following its successful debut at the Durban International Film Festival in July 2021, Shaka Inkosi Yamakhosi tells the story of Shaka Zulu, in way that leaves a legacy, highlighting not only Leadership, but Resilience, Courage, Faith, Innovativeness, Mentorship and Purpose. The animated short film is a narrative told from a Black South African perspective with the aim of reintroducing Shaka Zulu to a new generation.


Voiced by some of South Africa’s renowned thespians including, Lilian Dube as Gogo MaLamula Zulu, Ayanda Borotho as Queen Nandi, Mondli Makhoba as Shaka, Dawn Thandeka King as Mkabayi as well as Themba Ntuli as young Manzini, the film is set to wow audiences again at the much anticipated second edition of the Capri Movie I.F.F.

“The journey of Shaka Inkosi Yamakhosi has been nothing but fulfilling for us. From the moment we set out to produce this incredible body of work to its official premiere at DIFF 2021 which also saw us walking away with the Best South African Short award, we have been inspired and equally humbled by the reception of this story. To now have the opportunity to showcase our story at Capri Movie I.F.F. is another feat we do not take for granted, said Executive Producer and Co-Director of the film, Manzini Zungu.


Inspired by the story’s protagonist ‘Young Manzini’ — the story follows a tale told by Manzini’s Gogo about the coming-of-age story of a great warrior and King, Shaka Zulu to inspire her grandson through the strength of his lineage. Through Manzini’s journey, audiences are provoked to also find their inner Shaka to help them overcome their challenges.


“At the heart of developing this story, was a desire to own our African stories that are profuse with culture and diversity, which still capture and intrigues the world, and we are now well on way to doing just that,” concludes Zungu.
