Award Best Actor at 2022 edition of NYC Independent Film Festival in New York
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 26, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — South-African actor THAMI BUTI has won the award for Best Actor at the 2022 edition of the NYC Independent Film Festival in New York, for his role in the film LEFA (The Inheritance) by director Mpolokeng Chabane from Johannesburg, South Africa.
LEFA (The Inheritance) is about a hardworking lawyer who sells his virtue and essence to provide for his family after sustaining a spinal cord injury. The payoff is not as adequate as he would have thought, neither is it anything he expected.
Thami Buti is a 28-year-old South African actor, who starred in the Netflix-production “African America”. That film is about Nompumelelo, a cynical South African woman who embezzles funds from her workplace and abandons her fiancé to live out her Broadway dream in New York City only to discover that the US is not as welcoming as she had dreamed. There she learns about true love, true happiness, and true citizenship.
