|Ayanda (Fulu Mugovhani and O.C. Ukeje)|
This movie is like a breath of fresh air. Sara Blecher gives us a film about real people in real situations. We meet Ayanda (Fulu Mugovhani) who has to take over her father's workshop and find a way to make it work.
She meets David, (O.C. Ukeje) one of the mechanics and sparks fly.
Along the way she is left with a huge dilemma. Something that might cause her to make a huge sacrifice in her life.
Look out for a great cameo by Kenneth Nkosi as Zama.
This movie is shot in a very interesting way, interspersed with photography and animation visuals which blend together to make this a very unique and a very South African film.
From a script by Trish Malone, Director Blecher really gives us a different viewpoint of what it is like to live in the South Africa of now. This film was co-produced by Terry Pheto.
Catch it while you can at the Durban International Film Festival.
