We welcome back this celebration of African film which you can enjoy alongside African food, crafts, music and dance all day in the cinema foyer.
In the anniversary of the violent Soweto Youth Uprising of June 16th 1976, an affluent group of adolescent friends living in the city of Johannesburg, South Africa are shocked by the live streamed suicide of a young girl in her parent's family home. A year and some months after the incident, two disillusioned new generation Zulu youths, Jabz and his best friend September rummage through the sleepy manicured northern suburbs of Johannesburg in search of answers, drugs, distraction and salvation.
