You’re My Favourite Place
Directed by Jahmil X.T. Qubeka
2022, 90 min
Jahmil X.T. Qubeka’s latest film gives voice to marginalized and disenfranchised youth in South Africa today who are struggling with issues of identity, sexuality and gender-based violence while trying to figure out their place in an ever-changing world. The film chronicles the journey of four friends, each with personal traumas and uncertain futures, who on the last day of their high school career, embark on a road trip to a legendary Xhosa ancestors portal. A blend of 1980s genre tropes, this coming-of-age film not only explores the depths of teen angst, but also captures the unquenchable zest and promise of youth.
In English and Xhosa with English subtitles.
All films are free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
