"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.
It was Nyong’o’s idea to have Patsey making corn dolls during what little free time she had.
'I felt she was robbed of her childhood and I wanted to find ways of capturing that sensibility. Steve loved the idea and I learnt how to make the dolls, and made one almost every day. It was a therapeutic thing for Patsey, a way to stay in the zone, a part of her that couldn’t be enslaved.'
