The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture screens U-Carmen as part of its ongoing Classic International Black Cinema Series. In the film, lines are crossed when leading characters Carmen (Pauline Malefane), a cigarette roller in a factory near Cape Town, and Jongikhaya (Andie Tshoni), a cop with an unprofessional interest Carmen, meet. Jongikhaya’s lust for Carmen ultimately leads him to commit illegal activities. Ahhh, the power of love!
