    • Synopsis
    • A community vibrant with African migrants from across the continent, searching for something better, spliced between South African’s indigenous, multi-cultured stalwarts, Yeoville has conceived it’s own set of rules to survive. Occasionally legal. Often - not!
      Set in this district, Ayanda and the Mechanic is a coming-of-age story of a twenty-one year old Afrohipster, who embarks on a journey of self-discovery when she's thrown into a world of greasy overalls, gender stereotypes and abandoned vintage cars once loved, in need of a young woman’s re-inventive touch to bring them back into love again…
