“Ayanda” – November comes with girlpower

November 17, 7 pm

director: Sara Blecher

English Original with German subtitles


The young and passionate Ayanda has taken over the car garage of her deceased father, which is situated in a vibrant part of Johannesburg.  Trying to save the garage from bankruptcy, she wants to fix up old cars and auction them. Her employee David is helping her and would do anything for her. Even though Ayanda creates great pieces of art, most people around her find it off-key and inappropriate for a woman to run a car garage. Ayanda has to prove herself and fights against gender clichés, corruption and false friends.

Not only Ayanda, but the whole movie is full of energy and creativity. A comprehensive view on a modern, urban Africa.
