The Luck Specials (fea, 111min) by Rea Rangaka –
The Lucky Specials are a small-time cover band in a dusty mining town in southern Africa. Mandla (Oros Mampofu) works as a miner by day, but is passionate about playing guitar and dreams of making it big in the music industry. When tragedy strikes, Mandla, his friend (Sivenathi Mabuya) and the band must find the strength to make their dreams reality. “The Lucky Specials” is slated to entertain millions while also helping to shape attitudes and inform behaviors around tuberculosis.
