A short film / music video made in Elsies River, Cape Town. This no budget music video film features the Lyrical Soldiers of Elsies (L.S.E.). The video is based on a cypher session with DJ Ready D on Radio Good Hope FM. During the session, the DJ plays the beats and gives the mic to any MC who wants to "spit". LSE are from Elsies River, 39th Avenue, near "Clarkie" (Clarkes Estate). The area is also called "Dark City", a reference to it's once scary nature, where you could get robbed at any time and gangsters often died in shootouts with rivals. The video tries to capture this reality but still be positive.
The first trailer of the iPhone film now called STREETS ARE COLD. This crime drama film is set in the Cape Flats in South Africa. It tells the story of 2 brothers, Miles and Troubles, who grow up in a rough neighborhood. One is drawn to crime while the other wants to go to school and do something with his life. Eventually the pressure of not finding a job and the financial pressures drive him to join his brother. They set off on a shocking crime spree. We are currently in post production on Cape Epic which will be about 60 - 70 minutes in duration. The film came out of the Elsies River Film Workshop, which is facilitated by Rainbow Circle Films. We are continually fundraising in order to complete the film and take in on a tour of the Cape Flats where we want to screen it in schools and community centers. We welcome any donations which will help us achieve our goal.
