South African audiences are in for a treat when writer and director, Sunu Goneras’ highly anticipated coming of age drama, “Riding With Sugar”, premieres on Netflix, on 27 November.

“Riding With Sugar” is grounded in African aesthetics with powerful, visually rich scenes and an urgent undercurrent of passion and grit.

The film tells the story of a young refugee, Joshua, who has dreams of winning a BMX cycling championship as a means of finding a better life.

He meets Mambo, an enigmatic educator and foreigner himself who offers shelter to young refugees from all over the African continent.

“South African audiences, in particular, will identify with the realness and familiarity of this as well as with the undercurrents of hope that make the human spirit prevail.”

“We live in exciting times where stories, by Africans, have a platform to make our voices heard – our truth, dreams and aspiration are being told in ways that find credence abroad, and Netflix is leading this movement globally for African storytellers”, he added.
