Johannesburg – Terry Pheto’s latest film,Ayanda and the Mechanic, has won big at the LA Film Festival this week.

Terry and her team, which includes her bestie Mampho Brescia, have spent the last week in America at the LA Film Festival. And besides having loads of fun and making an impact with audiences (including famous director Alesia Weston), it seems like the film is doing super well with the festival’s critics.

Terry took to social media on Friday morning to announce that the film, which she produced, has been honoured by the festival with The Special Jury Prize.


Message from the #LAFilmFest2015 jury “Jury Prize goes to a film that is​ ​entertaining, ambitious and poignant​. Andannounces a fresh and original voice in World Fiction ​Cinema. The director deftly uses animation and reportage to move through a very human and socially significant story. ​The array of contemporary issues; multiculturalism, xenophobia and gender​ – are​ all dealt with subtly, allowing ​the audienceto take things in at our own pace. This film also offers insight to a part of South Africa rarely seen ​by the western world. A middle class family trying to make sense of secrets, love, pain and life, without making apologies for the characters and their situations. ​Through this honest story of a woman, her mission and the people in her life, ​we’re left with a healing quality ​of the film’s authenticity. The performances are very strong, led by the wonderful Fulu Moguvhani in the ​title ​role. Vibrant and full of energy, the film springs off the screen as the use of color and the streets of South Africa become an integral character of this story.​ The Special Jury Prize goes to “Ayanda and the Mechanic” by Sara Blecher.​ #AyandaMovie #LeadingLadyProductions
