Season 1


Yizo Yizo is the story of an ordinary school overcoming extraordinary obstacles.

It is about the struggle of ordinary people to learn, play, teach, read, dream, love and find their place in the world.

The school year starts at what seems a well-ordered Supatsela High.

This reflects the efforts of the current principle, a strict and conservative man who attempts to make the most of limited resources.

It soon becomes clear however, that his authoritarian style holds together by force a situation that is fundamentally unsound, and that it cannot continue to do so when the cracks in the ordered relationships of the school and its community begin to widen.

After a student is badly beaten at his hands, the principal is replaced by a charismatic BMW-driving colleague, who is in the pocket of the local township gangster.

An end-of-term bash plummets Supatsela High into chaos.

The start of the new term finds students and teachers facing a situation that has turned from bad to worse.

Will drugs and gangsterism mean the end of Supatsela High? Can students and teachers work together to turn this ugly situation around?

Amid the education crisis, students grapple with the realities of teenage social life, where social confidence, academic success, emerging identities and sexualities are played across and between the boundaries of different social groups.

Yizo Yizo was created and written by Teboho Mahlatsi, Peter Esterhuysen, Harriet Perlman, Mtutuzeli Matshoba and Angus Gibson and produced by Laduma Film Factory in association with The Shooting Party.

The executive producers are Laduma Film Factory and Isaac Shongwe.

The Season 1 producer is Desiree Markgraaff; the directors are Angus Gibson and Teboho Mahlatsi.

Music is by Philip Miller, with additional music composed and arranged by KB and Kyllex (Ghetto Ruff).

The soundtrack music is performed by Esmile, Skeem, Ammo, O Da Meesta, Ghetto Luv and Chiskop.
