Two people renovating a house in Manenberg, Cape Town, for those coming out of gangs and drugs.
We are Pete and Sarah Portal – two ordinary people with an exciting plan. We are part of a project called ‘Fusion’, working to help gangsters and drug addicts find hope and healing, by offering an alternative community to be part of.
We have bought a house in Manenberg, an area of Cape Town that we love, but is known for gangs, violence and drugs. This campaign is to raise funds to renovate the house, inside and out, so that we can live in it together with friends of ours who need help getting out of gangs and off drugs.
We want to contribute to the breaking down of social walls in Cape Town by cultivating family in a community that seems to have lost belief in itself, where addiction ravages lives and where gang wars are a regular occurrence.

I am not a film maker! So cut me some slack on the myriad of editing/audio flaws. It is not art, it is merely information: please use it! If you or anyone you know is "afraid of becoming like Canada" (or if you are passionate about health care reform) - please watch this video and spread it! When I left for Vancouver, I expected to present a balanced series of interviews, with positive and negative. I anticipated, given all the rhetoric we hear in the U.S. about the horrors of the Canadian system, that a good 30% of the population would shout warnings against a Universal Health Care system. This is not what I found. Well over 200 interviews later, I have whittled down 6+ hours of footage and compiled a very brief (and I believe - accurate) summary of ALL the opinions expressed to me by the randomly discovered participants.
Kind of shockingly exhibits the extreme and intentional lies of the opposition.

what it can reveal about identity and the relationship we have with our own image.
the installation captures movement in light creating a three dimensional,
'living' sculpture from the composite gestures of those who surround it.
viewers are bound together in the the moment as an ethereal, illuminated presence.
