Africa Shafted: Under One Roof presented by DocWatchers
Dir. Ingrid Martens, 2011, 55 min.
Filmed in the Ponte, Africa's tallest residential apartment building, which is home to more than 4000 people from every corner of Africa. This is not your everyday film. The film allows the viewer to be a fly on the wall, and intimately interact face to face with Africa. It puts a human face to refugees and migrants that have traveled so far for a better life, in search of the "African dream", in the continent's most economically booming city, Johannesburg, South Africa. This serious, poignant, humorous, and uplifting film reveals the courage, heart, hope, beauty and stories of daily struggles of Africans from the rest of the continent living in South Africa today.
Curated by Hellura Lyle. Followed by a Doc Watchers reception.
