[LISTEN] We would rather come to a compromise than cancel Inxeba - NFVF

The National Film and Video Foundation (NVFV) says it has agreed to make some changes to an already existing disclaimer in the movie Inxeba to address concerns by the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural‚ Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL).

The foundation met with the CRL last week over certain discrepancies in the movie and following complaints by organisations and the public over the depiction of traditional circumcision and initiation within the isiXhosa culture.

NVFV CEO Zama Mkhosi says some of the organisation's demands were an overreach.

We definitely did not agree with them on some the assertions that they were making on what the movie is doing or not doing.

Zama Mkhosi, CEO, National Film and Video Foundation 

Disclaimers appear in every film, the disclaimer was there, it i s not a new thing, But what we agreed to do was to put the disclaimer from the end up front.

Zama Mkhosi, CEO, National Film and Video Foundation 

Mkhosi has condemned the protest action in the Eastern Cape at the weekend.

If there is somewhere, yes we can meet halfway so that screenings can continue and people can actually watch the film. We would rather do that than have the film not be seen at all.

Zama Mkhosi, CEO, National Film and Video Foundation 

The hand of the law should be upon those who infringe the rights of people to go and pay and watch what they are entitled to. A process has taken place legally, the film publications board has rated the film and it has an age restriction. All of us as government agencies have played our part.
