In the presence of creator Benjamin Hoffman and actor Cantona James.
Ethan is a good kid born on the wrong side of town. In Cape Town's slums where local gangs make the law, he is soon left with no choice but to work for one of them to support himself and his younger brother. Caught in a web of crime, he discovers he has an incredible talent for spinning, an exciting and extreme motorsport. Could this be his way out from the violent criminal life that seems to be the only option to survive in his neighbourhood?
Note from the artistic direction
First African series selected in competition at CANNESERIES, Spinners shows us the rather unworthy daily life of gangs in the Cape Town projects. In this true Malthusian urban jungle, where you better not have any feelings, the main character will find redemption in Spinning, a new automobile sport that entails making artistic figures with damaged cars.
