Wonder Boy for President is a political satire directed by John Barker.
The flick features comedy heavyweight Kagiso Lediga, actress Thishiwe Ziqubu, Ntosh Madlingozi, Tony Myiyambo; Akin Omotoso, Loyiso Gola, Mary Thwala to name a few.
The film tells a story of a charismatic young man from the Eastern Cape who is persuaded by two corrupt characters into leaving his village life and head for the city of lights, Johannesburg to run of for presidency.
Wonder Boy for President ridicules the state of South African politics and draws the curtain of political chaos.
“There are also some well-known faces that play themselves,” explains Barker. “These include President Jacob Zuma, Julius Malema, Mmusi Maimane, Floyd Shivambu, Cyril Ramaphosa, Zwelinzima Vavi, Helen Zille, and Zapiro.”
Kagiso Lediga explains that the film was shot over 4 years and does not target a specific political party and has no malicious intent.
Wonder Boy for President will be showing at Ster-Kinekor from 29 July 2016.
