Married to Work
Directed by Philippe Bresson
2023, 76 min
Set in Zanzibar, this rom-com is a refreshing showcase of inter-African high commerce and intercultural cosmopolitan dynamics. To save their real estate agency, an ambitious businesswoman and her entitled boss must convince an investor that they are married…despite hating each other. This quintessential East African comedy highlights well-known tropes about Swahili vs Kiswahili and the differences among cultures.
In English and Swahili with English subtitles.
