City Press picks a tense local film to watch on Showmax this week

Johannesburg - ShowMax has a plethora of great local TV shows to stream. This week's pick of the stream in Of Good Report.

Directed by Jahmil XT Qubeka, this tense South African film noir thriller was one of the most talked about films at the 2013 Durban International Film Festival.

It was initially banned by the Film and Publication Board for alleged child pornography, as it shows the relationship between an introverted teacher who becomes attracted to and starts having an affair with a student.

The film was later unbanned and suitably recognised for highlighting important issues in South African society. It has won massive acclaim and several awards since then.

Available on Showmax from 31 August.
