The Deal (2022)
The short film The Deal tells the story of 18-year-old Thandeka, who finds herself in a transactional relationship with a wealthy older man.
Written and directed by award-winning dancer, actor and social entrepreneur Paul Modjadji and produced by Wandile Molebatsi (Silverton Siege), The Deal looks at the social challenges faced by young people in South Africa – issues of gender-based violence, mental illness, fatherlessness, and the fine line between coercion and consent.
Spoken word artist, SA’s Got Talent winner and Scandal! actress Botlhale Boikanyo stars alongside the likes of SAFTA Lifetime Achievement recipient Abigail Kubeka and SAFTA winners Jerry Mofokeng wa Makhetha (Tsotsi) and Aubrey Poo (Isibaya).
