Lightbulb South Africa's answer to Slumdog makes stars of poor children

Low-budget film with 11-year-old township girl in lead role wins international plaudits

An 11-year-old girl living in a township in KwaZulu-Natal will walk the red carpet this week at the premiere of an award-winning film described as South Africa's Slumdog Millionaire.

Sobahle Mkhabase, above, is among seven children drawn from an impoverished background who have won plaudits for their acting in the film iZulu Lami (My Secret Sky).

Sobahle has already won a best actress award at the Tarifa festival in Spain, and the film has won prizes at African film festivals in Cannes and Zanzibar. Shot in a month on a budget of 4.5m rand (350,000) iZulu Lami receives its first domestic screening on Thursday at the Durban international film festival.
