A Small Town Called Descent is the stylish debut feature from talented South African director Jahmil XT Qubeka.
The film follows three Scorpion agents in their investigation of xenophobic attacks that took place in a small town. A darkly humourous look at South Africa's political dynamics, the film features powerful performances from the all-star cast of Vusi Kunene, Paul Buckby, Fana Mokoena and Isidingo's Hlubi Mboya. A Small Town Called Descent showcases a strong and unapologetic voice and an honest but resonant portrait of South African life.
