Meanwhile in mamelodi

Director:Benjamin Kahlmeyer


Run time:75'


The Mtsweni family live in Pretoria Township, better known as Extension 11. Their world is a ramshackle collection of corrugated tin houses and makeshift shops, open sewers filled with debris, and rectangles of red earth filled with kids playing football and teenagers. . Seventeen-year-old Mosquito is one of those children. As she studies for math tests, flirts with boys and goes shopping with her best friend, her father Steven prepares his "candy shop" for the promise of cash tourists. Meanwhile, his wife struggles with mental illness. The life of the Mtswenis unfolds as the Cup brings new hope to the devastated city.
