    Drama

    In the township of Mphopomeni in the KwaZulu-Natal region of South Africa, Siyabonga, a young man, puts up theatre plays. When he hears about a movie that will be shot in a nearby town, he makes it his mission to be part of it. From conspiring with a maid to steal wifi from the “umlungus” (white people) so he can write an email to the film producers to using witchcraft, Siyabonga does all he can to improve his life and take control of his fortune. And after travelling many surprising roads, he’ll finally meet the film’s director. WE ARE THANKFUL is born out of their encounter.
