a short film I did for the Happy Feet Youth Project, these kids were the dancers on the Spoek music video I shot with Peter Hugo and Michael Cleary. They are living in one of the most dangerous and poor areas in Langa, this project helps them stay inspired and so inspired me. hope you enjoy ...
Taking my inspiration from the old political slogans and stencils that were used during the struggle against apartheid.
I wanted to bring to life sentences from the freedom charter document that i felt were still pressing in south africa today.
The freedom charter document is an important historical document that acted as a backbone for the struggle listing the demands and desires of the people.
Today it is becoming increasingly evident that many of these changes have only been made on a superficial level.
