An original movie 

Coming on Saturday 1 April at 19:30, Sofa Silahlane is a remarkable movie produced by the young filmmakers from M-Net’s Magic in Motion Academy.

It’s a compelling and emotional film that tells the story of the ill-fated romance between Mojalefa and Azania whose love is cruelly cut short when a pregnant Aza dies in a car accident. What follows is a disturbing journey of real versus imagined as Mo struggles to accept that his one true love is no more.

He can still see and talk to her, and he can’t understand why he is treated as “crazy” by everyone else. Sofa Silahlane is a beautiful love story with a far-from-happily-ever-after fairytale ending.
