South African filmmaker Jahmil X.T. Qubeka (you may recall his last feature film, A Small Town Called Descent, was profiled on this site), will see his follow-up to that film, Of Good Report, make its World Premiere at the International Film Festival Rotterdam's 42nd edition, which runs Jan 23 to Feb 3.

South African filmmaker Jahmil X.T. Qubeka (you may recall his last feature film, A Small Town Called Descent, was profiled on this site), will see his follow-up to that film, Of Good Report, make its World Premiere at the International Film Festival Rotterdam's 42nd edition, which runs Jan 23 to Feb 3.

Qubeka's film, described as an homage to classic film noir, will screen in the Bright Future program of the festival, which is dedicated to first and second feature films.

Of Good Report tells the story of a demented school teacher's attempts to get away with the brutal murder of a teenage beauty queen.  with a penchant for young girls - a journey into the soul of a man who is far from mentally sane.

The teacher gets involved with one of his students, which obviously doesn't end well. Jahmil calls it a "serial killer origins story."

The celebrated young filmmaker has seen his past work across a spectrum of filmmaking disciplines, screen at various international film festivals, from Rotterdam, to Pusan International Film Festival, Dubai Film Festival, Pan African Film Festival (LA), Stolkholm Film Festival and others.

In 2005 an Aids documentary he directed for Sesame Street (Talk To Me) won the prestigious Peabody Award for best actuality programming, and more.

Jahmil tells me that his last film, A Small Town Called Desent, will be available on iTunes in another month or 2, so when we know that it's available, so will you.
