Welcome to Extension 11 - one of the countless neighborhoods in the township of Mamelodi in Pretoria, South Africa, where the Mtsweni family is hoping for good business during the 2010 World Cup.
Father Steven puts all his energy into his small kiosk in the middle of the township. Meanwhile, daughter "Moskito" struggles through the turmoil of puberty and dreams of a career as a professional soccer player or paleontologist.
A family portrait, away from the flashy World Cup broadcasts, about two South African generations, their dreams, disappointments and realities.
"One-thousand-watt personalities combined with beautiful lensing make MEANWHILE IN MAMELODI a star thesis project from tyro helmer Benjamin Kahlmeyer." (Variety)
