Street Stories South Africa is a mini documentary created during my degree at the University of Johannesburg. It follows the day in the life of Thulani, one of many South African street children who have run away from home to find a better life in the city. Unfortunately many of these children do not find what they were looking for and end up living on the street, homeless.

This was the first time I think we as students had a chance to film in the real world, by ourselves and unsupervised. So technically I feel a lot could have been improved, and I'm glad to know I have definitely improved.

More importantly though, we were able to follow the story of a young boy, who was extremely honest with us, and I feel is a strong point in this mini documentary, which captures the audience and brings attention to such an issue.

    The Refugee Center was founded in 1996 after the first refugees from war-ridden Chechnya fled to Moscow and found that their children were barred from schools because they had no local registration. The center offers its services to over 70 children today from many different countries, including Afghanistan, Syria and Congo.

    In summer 2015 director & producer Valentina Gordeeva went to meet the children and the staff members of the center.
