This is the independent film distribution and resource collective’s 19th feature to pick up.
As it prepares for a national screening tour starting in October and a November 1 Netfilx debut.
The synopsis from ARRAY:
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.
“We’re excited to add this vibrant work to Array’s catalog
and we look forward to sharing its message of hope in the face of adversity with an international audience,”
Tilane Jones, ARRAY vice president, tells Deadline.
