      • Fighting for Freedom: South Africa's Struggle with Apartheid

        South Africa has a long and checkered past with apartheid, and many of the scars of this time period can still be felt--and seen--throughout the country. On our recent visit to Cape Town, students from Semester at Sea got the chance to visit Robben Island, the prison that Nelson Mandela called home for 18 years. Amidst incredible injustice, the prisoners of Robben Island still found ways to communicate with one another, working together towards their quest for freedom at all costs. Visiting Robben Island and the District 6 Museum, which tells the story of resettlement in one of the largest black communities throughout Cape Town, helped many students to understand the tattered making of what is today known as the "rainbow nation,"and inspired a sense of international justice in all. Watch this heartfelt video as students react to their visit to Robben Island, the District 6 Museum, and the township of Langa, and learn how their time in South Africa has impacted and inspired them.

            It may be a bit of a cliche to use music from The Shawshank Redemption, but it is kinda fitting in a particularly downbeat way. Wish I'd had my steadicam though... Shot on the SD100 on Boxing Day 2009.

                      In July 2011 I joined a women's Canada World Youth 6 month volunteer team composed of 18 young women; 9 Canadian's and 9 South African's. Together we lived in South Africa's second largest township whereas each Canadian was paired with a South Africa and lived with a host family. In the community we participated in community outreach on issues related to gender equality, HIV/AIDS, domestic violence and substance abuse. Each day there were challenges and the journey was never easy, but it was worth every breath. This documentary seeks to capture the experience of the volunteers while shedding light to break the stereotypes of life in a developing country. Highlights include interviews, scenic views of Table Mountain, a lecture by Ela Gandhi (granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi) and more!
