“I am delighted and proud that U-Carmen eKhayelitsha has won the prestigious Golden Bear Award at the Berlin International Film Festival. My heartiest congratulations go to Pauline Malefane, Mark Dornford-May, Dick Enthoven and the Carmen team on this great achievement.
I admire Mark’s courage and commitment to this project, both on stage and on screen. U-Carmen eKhayelitsha is certainly a unique South African version of Bizet’s timeless opera in the Xhosa language and one that illustrates the universality of the story.”
