dc.description.abstractVuta nkuvute (A Tug of War) is a feature-length fiction screenplay based on Adam Shafis award-winning Swahili novel, which is taught in high school literature classes across Tanzania. The story explores a forbidden romance between star-crossed lovers against the backdrop of 1950s colonial Zanzibar. Yasmin, a young Indian-Zanzibari runaway bride is intrigued by Denge, an African communist whose youthful rebelliousness lands him in trouble with the British colonial regime. Their passionate but forlorn relationship is coupled with their daily struggles of finding their place in the resistance movement for independence.
