Woza (Come in Zulu) tells the story of an African surfer who has been taken as a lover by the African water spirit Mami Wata. It features 22 year-old Transkei surfer, Avuyile Ndamase.
Directed by Argentinians Pato Martinez and Francisco Canton of the Directors collective Pantera Estudio, the five-minute film follows the narrative of a local surfer who has been flooded with love by Mami Wata, who the Dutton’s describe as “from Madagascar to Morocco, Liberia to Mozambique, Mami Wata is the legend of the African water spirit that appears in the shape of a mermaid,” adding “it is said that those who she takes for her lovers, return with a new spirit and become more successful and good looking.”
