Film Still: We Are Thankful

We Are Thankful

  •   Joshua Magor
  •   South Africa

Based on the real encounter between the director and lead actor, this measured, compelling docu-fiction follows a day in the life of Siyabonga, a young man from a township who dreams of becoming an actor. Upon learning about a film production in a nearby town, he does whatever it takes, including scrounging for wifi and taxi fare, to make the journey to meet the director. Zulu with subtitles.


Co-presented by the South African Consulate in Chicago
