  4. Meg Whyte on the angst in suburban teams and the relevance of establishing health interests in youth taken from South African documentary film " The Kids Need More Hugs" currently in production phase.

    The film aims to dissect the johannesburg suburban experience as it relates to upper/middle class alternative teenagers. The film hopes to adequately portray the truths of subjects (including but not limited to) substance abuse, suicide, race, sexuality, elitism and the role of alternative culture in adolescents, centralizing in providing a series of vignette into the experiences of the first democratically free south african middle class.
