A strange meeting and a gift transform a young Zulu woman (Manthe Ribane) into a powerful and mysterious character known as Ghost Kat. They propel her into the unknown, a journey through a fictional city – part toxic wasteland, part futuristic urban maze. In six episodes, each introduced by narrator Bhubesi (Khaya Sibiya), Ghost Kat makes her way through a series of encounters.
A fusion of several art forms including music, dance, fashion, storytelling and film, Ghost Diamond is an experimental short film created by musician OkZharp (Gervase Gordon) and photographer and filmmaker Chris Saunders.
Manthe Ribane, who has toured internationally with Die Antwoord, both performs vocals on Gordon’s soundtrack for Ghost Diamond, and stars in the lead role as Ghost Kat.
