"A group of well-dressed young men vie for the attention of a young lady, and soon learn her affection is won by a kind gesture, and a bit of cleverness.
In collaboration with Johannesburg based fashion gurus, Boys of Soweto, this fashion inspired film highlights the suave gentlemen decorum of the group as well as their clear sense of style. The film was shot in one day in Soweto.”
Not only does this display the impeccable taste and style of these gentlemen, but it also shows off the skills of Meja L. Shoba, the lady behind the camera. Shoba is a filmmaker from Johannesburg, South Africa, specializing in producing narrative films and documentaries.
