South African director Sandulela Asanda’s comedic coming-of-age story features a video call between 17-year-old Luthando and her best friend Jodie. Together they try to explore their sexuality and find out what it means to be a woman. Both entertaining and empowering, this short feature film had its world premiere in Shortcuts at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival.
SANDULELA ASANDA has a degree in film from the AFDA Film School in Cape Town. Her student film NONGQAWUSE was selected as the South African entry for the 2019 BRICS Film Festival. She is an alumna of the Locarno Film Festival’s BaseCamp, the Durban Film Mart and the Realness African Screenwriters’ Residency. She is currently working on her feature-length debut, BLACK BURNS FAST, the coming-of-age story of a Black teenage girl who attends a predominantly white elite high school.
