I WANT TO SEE FOR MY SELF
Fanyana Hlabangane / In Progress / 9 mins / DCP
In June of 1976, the Soweto uprising, a series of protests led by black South African students which was met with repressive police violence by the apartheid state, showed a new, defiant face of the fed-up segregated youth to the watching world. Now, over forty years later, Khanyile’s remarkable documentary reignites the fire of the uprising using archival footage and the firsthand accounts of students leaders to vividly return to the joy and pain that marked a turning point in the history of South Africa.
Screening as a part of Double Exposure.
