“Siyabonga” (english title: We Are Thankful), named after main character Siyabonga Majola, is a docufiction film set in modern day South Africa. We follow Siyabonga, a young man from the township of Mphopomeni, who one day hears that a movie is to be made in a nearby town and makes it his mission to be a part of the film. Siyabonga’s journey takes him down many surprising paths that lead him to a meeting with the film’s director. Here we observe the conversation that caused the film we are watching to come into existence. A film based on real events, re-enacted by those who lived through them, we follow this extraordinary man as he does all he can to try and improve his life and take control of his fortune.
