Tsotsi The Film Trailer

The different tasks suggested in this worksheet are based on the trailer of the South African film Tsotsi, by Gavin Hood. The film shows how despair and violence still prevail in some areas of post-apartheid South Africa.

Tsotsi, (“thug” or “gangster” in the street slang of the township and ghettos) is the story of a young thug from Soweto whose life is changed after he accidentally kidnaps a baby. Using trailers allows you to work on the latest films, or even films that haven’t been released yet… which is a great way to catch your pupils’ interest!
