The Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) opened with a bang last-night with a local film titled Ayanda .

Ayanda is a beautiful South African story,  overwhelmed by the diversity of the cast and story line that is well put together. Fresh, new look of the typical South African story, that frequents our  big screen, No blood, no explicit imagery or scenes. A true African story. The  movie circles around the life of Ayanda, a young ambitious girl who is born of a Nigerian father and South African mother. It is a story of dreams and the diversity we have in South Africa. Set in the heart of Yoeville, Johannesburg, where people from different African countries meet, illustrates determination, love and sacrifice.

Ayanda is directed by Sara Blecher and produced by Real Eyes in association with Leading Lady Productions.
