  1. My English name is J.Jay is a short documentary about Lungelo “J. Jay” Xaba, a young man who ended up living on the streets as a result of peer pressure. J. Jay dreams of finding a sponsor, and enter and win a skateboarding competition, so that he can go back home as a “somebody”.
    His contagious laugh and sparkle in the eye is only overshadowed by his passion for skating . He speaks english with a suburban accent, afrikaans like a kid from the coloured townships; a boy from the challenging streets of e’Njoli Square. J. Jay dares to dream despite his circumstances. He has the audacity to believe that his dream of becoming a pro skater can be realised; that he too can have a decent meal, a good income a warm bed and a place to call home.

    Despite not owning a skateboard or bicycle of his own, Lungelo has an insatiable passion for skating, cycling and hanging at the skate park. He has the respect of the other skaters, but at night on weekends, and most days during the week, Lungelo has to spend hours by himself.
