Featuring a conversation with director Jahmil X.T. Qubeka and South African Consul General Phumzile Pride Mazibuko on the streaming platform.


Dudu, a womanizing, aging professional boxer is threatened by a young up-and-coming talent. When his career-criminal brother, Duke, is released from prison, the two leverage criminal connections in hopes of one last shot at a comeback, fame, and glory. Rendered with bracing visuals and a human touch, Knuckle City examines the legacy of apartheid and its impact on South Africa’s Indigenous communities.
