LCIFF is proud to present AYANDA, winner of the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival Special Jury Prize in the World Fiction Competition, and “a fresh, modern, stylish take on 21st century Africa, deeply rooted in personal history, experience, and context” (Indiewire).
After tragedy strikes, a young woman begins a journey of self-discovery as she struggles to save her father’s car repair shop along with her memory of him. AYANDA is a coming-of-age story from writer/director Sara Blecher that takes us into a vibrant Johannesburg community alive with love and humor, risk and reward, tragedy and triumph.
The screening will be followed by a short discussion moderated by Kundai Chirindo, Assistant Professor of Rhetoric and Media Studies at Lewis & Clark College.
Directed by Sara Blecher; Not Rated; 111 minutes; 2015
