Canadian Premiere

A Country Imagined takes us through South Africa's most beautiful and culturally layered spaces and through this, we explore the rich histories of art in the country. Johnny Clegg combines a unique ability to learn, teach and perform simultaneously. In the series he performs with musicians and dancers in remote villages around the country, talks to artists, both famous and unknown, hikes the Drakensberg to find the best rock art and views, travels in hot air balloons, helicopters and boats. To this he brings his insight, expertise and a great deal of humour, offering viewers a rich and accessible perspective on South African art
Johnny Clegg makes his way through obscure parts of the Karoo's long, desolate stretches, where he encounters some of the area's most surprising and inspiring art and artists. From eccentric seers, Karoo drag queens and masterful storytellers, all the way from the Valley of Desolation and down to Die Hel, strange hidden treasures are everywhere.

Set in rural South Africa, this is a surprising story about an unconventional horse race and a humble man who is risking his livelihood to win it. It's about a dream, passion and blind faith, against the odds.Mr. King Naki has the greatest and most successful racehorse in the whole of upper and lower Bolotwa. People travel to his tiny village to see the famous horse in the stables he built himself . He was raised to follow in his father's footsteps, working as a stable hand in the city. But he had bigger plans, so he quit the stables and spent all his savings (R8000) to buy a horse. The people in his village thought he was crazy to blow all his money on a horse. He responded by calling his horse "Thula Sibone" - Wait and See! His dream is to win the annual Amateur Horseracing Championships.
