The World Premiere for our latest film, I Am Thalente is this Thursday, April 7th at the Downtown Independent. Congrats to Director, Nathalie Johns, on a long journey to get here. Her story along with the film's subject, Thalente, is nothing short of incredible. Complete list of screenings can be found HERE.
I AM THALENTE chronicles the journey of a homeless skateboarder from South Africa whose talent takes him from the harsh street-life of Durban at age 9, to Los Angeles where he deals with the challenges that empower him to surmount his limitations and become a young man ready to face the world head on. It is life-affirming story for homeless and underprivileged youths the world over, and speaks to the fact the sports and an inherent goodness in people can change lives.
