Durban Days – The Pilot

This is a rite of passage for five friends. A journey, a coming-of-age story of four medical students and an Anglican seminary student. Mammu(Steve), Trix, Trevor, Aretha and Zwai. Their style is flower-dashiki sub-culture, Black Power Afros and hippies. With youthful enthusiasm and bubbly idealism, they are geared to stop Apartheid in its tracks. To search and find a platform that once adopted by the Blacks could not be crushed by the system. Little do they know that this quest will shatter the bonds of their friendship. They suffer isolation, expulsion from school, trysts of love triangles, love across ethnic lines, break-ups, a brush with Apartheid laws, snitches and betrayal, indulgence in alcohol and Durban Poison dagga, unemployment and destitution. They are thrown in jail and ultimately, banned and banished from Durban.


Heritage is a mystery. If you subject yourself to the emotions, the passions, remembrances and the real voices of the people you are working on. It is indeed resurrecting of those people. Those people are great spirits. They will never die. Vusi Mchunu
