DIRECTED BY AKIN OMOTOSO
Paying homage to the Tsotsitaal namesake meaning “to go”, filmmaker Akin Omotoso's VAYA chronicles the innocence lost by three young South Africans who journey away from their rural homes on a train bound for Johannesburg. Stirring and suspenseful, the intertwining stories of strangers struggling to survive culminate in an explosive moment based on real accounts. VAYA made its world premiere at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival and garnered Omotoso the Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Director.
