Drum

No, this is not the sequel to Mandingo you all hoped for. Director Zola Maseko based this 2004 film on the life of South African investigative journalist Henry Nxumalo, who worked for the popular Drum magazine. Called “the first black lifestyle magazine in Africa,” the picture dealt squarely with the issues of apartheid and the forced removal of residents from Sophiatown. American actors Taye Diggs and Gabriel Mann played Henry Nxumalo and Jürgen Schadeberg respectively, while most of the rest of the cast were South African actors.
