In december 2008, a group of 10 people went from Belgium to Soweto to create a "Murga" together with South African partners. They had to explain together what a "Murga" is (a kind of parading band that is popular in Argentina and has growing popularity in some European cities) and work closely to form such a group in three weeks, assembling talents in four disciplines (dance, music, costumes and spoken-word). The process was followed by a murga-film-crew, a non-professional, cooperative group of filmmakers with the mission to portray the people and the process. Filmed and edited by Lot Vandekeybus, Kristel Driesmans and Orlando Verde.
