Steve Pasvolsky, an Australian, directed his film in South Africa and the photography has a crystalline beauty, casting a cold light on the tough realities it depicts. The deceptively simple story of a black boy whose puppy is used as a pawn by his white boss, “Inja” kicks hard at the truth of what horrors may yet befall South Africa. The storytelling is economical and powerful, the ending a masterpiece of chilling ambiguity.
