The world premiere of Jozi, the comedy produced by Anant Singh and Helena Spring and Directed by Craig Freimond took place last night at NuMetro MonteCasino with Minister of Trade and Industry, Rob Davies as Guest of Honour with all the stars in attendance. The film stars some of South Africa’s most talented actors, including Lionel Newton, Carl Beukes, Jena Dover, Lindiwe Matshikiza, Moshidi Moshegwa and Nick Boraine.
Jozi follows James, a successful comedy writer who feels overwhelmed by crime, politics, pessimism and a feather duster salesman. When his girlfriend leaves him for a guy who he thinks is the most boring man in the world, he loses the very spark of humour which enables him to earn his living. In a madcap journey, James travels through the highways and byways of South Africa from Daspoort Rehab to Johannesburg to try and recover his elusive sense of humour as well as his ability to love and laugh again.
