In Brief:

Distribution

- Soccer Cinema, a travelling cinema series, will bring some of the world's best soccer documentaries to 50 small towns and townships across the country before culminating in a Soccer Cinema Festival at Labia on Orange from June 5 to 10. Soccer Cinema will specifically set up its mobile screen in small towns that will not be able to experience the World Cup live - towns with notable histories. For information, see www.soccercinema.co.za


- Despite strong racial tensions in South Africa at the moment, e.tv will go ahead and air The Birth of a Nation, a 1915 film characterised by extreme racism and once used as a recruiting tool for the Ku Klux Klan in the US.
