What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Masego Panyane quote iconA trendy love letter to Jozi.
Gabi Zietsman quote iconCatching Feelings is a strong academic film that raises valid points in South African debates around love, race and classism, but just fails the mark by excluding women from the conversation. It’s well-produced and written despite flaws in its rhythm and would make a good watch for your proudly South African dose of local cinema.
