Material is out to download on April 27th. The story follows Cassim (Riaad Moosa – Mandela: A Long Walk To Freedom), a respectful young Muslim working in his father’s fabric shop in downtown Johannesburg. When a series of events place him on stage at an open mic comedy night, he discovers a previously hidden talent for stand-up and a passion is sparked that promises to change his life forever…
Charming, profoundly funny and brilliantly observed; Material is a comedy about stand-up, about family and about identity. Inspired by Moosa’s own journey, as well as by the cultural and political changes seen over the last 20 years in South Africa, the film also features Vincent Ebrahim (The Kumars At No.42) and arrives on iTunes following a rapturous response on the international festival circuit.
Check out the trailer below.
