SHORTS PROGRAM 3
SCARS
SCARS tells the story of two well-known Cape Town dancers  Megan Erasmus and Celeste Botha, both mixed race  trace their ancestry through dance and drama. At the heart of Scars is the stage show of the same name, an exploration through dance, voiceover and physical theatre of what it means to be coloured in 2011 as well as the importance of roots and heritage.

Between scenes from the show are frank, intimate interviews with both women and their families, and it's here that the film is at its most compelling, revealing telling glimpses of hidden prejudices, rarely spoken truisms and touching moments of almost throw-away epiphany. Indeed, the convergence of race and dance (a longtime Jazzart preoccupation) is one of Scars' most intriguing elements. What, after all, is the difference between white and black dance, has a
South African convergence happened yet and, once again, how does being coloured influence it?

LISTEN
LISTEN is a coming of age tale about a young bi racial girl struggling to find herself in what she thinks is a colorless world. The story fast forwards to her 16 years later discussing her struggles a child and in dealing with post partum depression.

COLOR BLIND
Whether it is walking down the street, or on the cover of a magazine, a black child with a white parent elicits a response. Approximately forty percent of adoptions in the United States are trans-racial- and international adoptees are the fasting growing group. Often, adoptees live a political existence, as many have strong political opinions on trans-racial adoption.Color Blind looks at how two different white families who adopted from Haiti are dealing with race and identity. Will they be up to the challenge of raising self-identified black men?  Going beyond the headlines and the image, Color Blind asks the question: how do families that adopt children outside of their race navigate culture and race?
