Cape Town – South African award-winning production company, Tribal Alchemy Productions, has pledged to give 20% of the proceeds from the short film “Two Hues” to the National Shelter Movement of South Africa (NSMSA).
According to The Citizen, the NSMSA represents around 100 shelters for victims and survivors of abuse.
Tribal Alchemy Productions is working in collaboration with a US-based global online streaming platform.
Executive chairperson of NSMSA Dr Zubeda Dangor said that the organisation is struggling with funding, particularly from the government.
“As an organisation that continues to struggle with severe funding shortages (especially from government), which hamper our efforts to protect victims of gender-based violence, we encourage everyone to watch this short film. And since launching our National Shelter Helpline, just over a year ago, we need all the help we can get.
“Just by watching this 16-minute film you will be helping us raise much-needed funds to ensure that our shelters are equipped to provide safe spaces and relevant services to the victims of GBV that come to our facilities for assistance. Helping our women stay safe has never been easier,” said Dangor as quoted by iAfrica.
Two Hues is about a bipolar woman who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of a sexual assault.
The film follows her as she navigates patriarchy in her family and workplace.
