Meanwhile in Mamelodi

Meanwhile in Mamelodi

Deutschland 2011, Dokumentarfilm

Inhalt

Extension 11 – one of many districts in the Mamelodi township in South Africa. Welcome to the “shack side”. Running
water, electricity and paved roads are nowhere to be found.
But even here there is of course daily life, which the
Mtsweni family masters with routine and ingenuity. Father
Steven puts all his energy into his small kiosk located in the
township, thus keeping his family afloat and enabling his
children an education. His daughter “Mosquito” is fighting
her way through the confusion of puberty and dreams of a
career as a professional footballer or paleontologist. Born in
1993, during the abolition of apartheid, she is part of a new
generation that believes in the chance of a career and a better
life. Will the 2010 Soccer World Cup hosted in their
country have an impact on the daily life of the family?


A portrait of a family made up of two South African gener -
ations, their hopes, disappointments, dreams and realities.
