South African Student's Short Film - Port Elizabeth
This was a special project. It involved many people from the townships just out of the Port Elizabeth area, such as Joe Slovo and Kwamagxaki. This film was the result of a 3 week filmmaking class involving a small group of 15 and 16yr olds with no filmmaking experience. The class was provided a space for lecturing and sponsorship by the non-profit organization ArtWorksForYouth. Many of the kids and I spent everyday walking many miles to our locations. They chose to shoot the dinner scene in one of their teachers houses instead of one of their own because they wanted to show a house that they all hope to be able to live in one day. They wanted to tell a positive story, a story that preached a message of hope.
