Some individuals just have a unique and special light about them. And such is definitely the case with Angela Matemotja. With all grace, clarity and candor the award-winning independant film actor, producer, director and writer speaks with us this week regarding her upcoming feature film ‘Elevate’ and just how her culturally diverse upbringing at the hands of her Russian mother and South African father shaped both her passion for and voice within the dramatic arts. Her journey is a unique and wholly inspiring one. How exactly does one go from growing up in places like the former Soviet Union and East Africa only to end up in America and working with industry titans like Tyler Perry? Motivation is here, inspiration is here … and her name is Angela Matemotja. Thanks for listening.
