IPI Culture in Your Community Series Presents: TOTSI

Join Infinite Possibilities International (IPI) and Rosedale Neighborhood Library for a free screening of Academy Award winning, TSOTSI. This movie is a jewel of a film. Though set in Johannesburg, South Africa, the story is unfortunately so universal that the film could have been made in any country in the world: the lost children of abusive parents who survive life by relying on crime fill the streets of the poor neighborhoods of all major cities. One night, in desperation, Tsotsi steals a woman's car. But as he is driving off, he makes a shocking discovery in the backseat.
