Trailer - "Waited For" (On White Lesbian Couples Adopting Black Children)

Trailer for an upcoming documentary by Nerina Penzhorn, titled Waited For, which centers on stories of mainly white South African lesbians who adopt across racial lines – mostly black children.

Can’t help but immediately think of Nicole Opper’s 2009 documentary, Off And Running,. which we featured on the old S&A site.

The film is prepping to make a worldwide film festival run, starting with Frameline, and New Zealand in June, followed by the Out in Africa Film Festival in South Africa, in August.

You can keep up with the film’s progress via its website HERE.
