YEAR OF PRODUCTION:
SAMBA looks at the resilient role of African women in society today as we follow the lives of two women in positions of power who struggle to cope with the chaos of their domestic lives. A fast-rising company is run by Katrine and Noella, two delightful divas in their late twenties obviously married to the wrong men. There’s Leo, a male chauvinist pig, and Maxwell, who is still obsessed with his ex, Lauretta. A high-stakes drama set in an African fashion house whose vibrancy and volatility are matched only by the bright, changing colors of a chameleon.
