Breakthroughs Film Festival is proud to once again be partnering with the Toronto Black Film Festival in 2016!
This year we are co-presenting the film Ayanda and the Mechanic.
In a community vibrant with migrants from across the African Continent, against the backdrop of unspoken love, a young woman tries to navigate a path for herself. But this is a world where everything keeps shifting… Everything except the one thing that really does need to change. Ayanda and the Mechanic is a coming of age story of a twenty one year old Afro hipster, who embarks on a journey of self discovery trying to keep the memory of her father alive, when she’s thrown into a world of greasy overalls, gender stereotypes and abandoned vintage cars in need of a young woman’s re inventive touch who tries to reclaim what would’ve been, what could’ve been.
It’s showing Feb 13, 2016 at 7:00 PM at the Carlton Cinema. Tickets are $10.
Enjoy the trailer below, we’ll see you there!
