Doors  & Dinner 7pm
Screening 8pm
FREE Afterparty 10pm

Welcome to South Africa, for a screening of the charged film, Necktie Youth. Post-Apartheid. Post-Internet. Disenchanted youth.

Jabz and September are angry. The two twenty-something year olds float through a day of drugs, sex and philosophizing in their Johannesburg suburban neighborhood.  Shot using bold-black-and white photography, Necktie Youth pivots around the fall out of the internet live-streamed suicide of their friend, Emily.  They are ill-equipped to handle the tragedy that interrupts the mundaneness of their millennial lives.

"Director Shongwe-La Mer's racially varied human subjects belong to what South Africans have come to term the "Born Free" generation: Born after Nelson Mandela's liberation and into a new democracy, they haven't directly known the horrors of the country's political past, yet are still living with its legacy." - Variety Magazine
