In a community vibrant with migrants from across the African Continent, against the backdrop of unspoken love, Ayanda and the Mechanic is a coming of age story about a young woman who 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 presents a new role model to young girls – on the cusp of adulthood – that allows them to consider new options and possibilities for their own lives. It showcases a successful, young woman, an entrepreneur, who manages to navigate her way through the grease and garages that define a man’s world.

NOTE OF THE PRORGAMMER (LAFF 2015)
In a vibrant and diverse Johannesburg community, 21-year-old Afro-hipster Ayanda has a knack for taking neglected pieces of furniture and « bringing them back to love. » Eight years after her father’s death, she is determined to revive his prized garage, which is in deep debt and in danger of being sold. Director Sara Blecher’s sophomore work crackles with infectious energy and style, capturing a vividly contemporary view of a South Africa where cooperation trumps xenophobia. This one-of-a-kind film melds gorgeous still-frame montages inspired by the possibilities of a modern African aesthetic and documentary-like techniques to explore its core theme: how do we let go of the things and people we love?
-Steven Jacobson (Los Angeles Film Festival 2015)
