Doc Watchers Inc. Presents - Cinderella of the Cape Flats
Monday, March 4th, 7:00pm
Doc Watchers Inc. Presents A Women's History Month Special

Cinderella of the Cape Flats: Volume 2 of Real Stories from a Free South Africa
Jane Kennedy, 2004, 58 min.
Everyday the working class women of color in the garment industry of the windswept flats around Cape Town toil anonymously to make clothes so that other women will look beautiful. Invariably they cannot afford these garments themselves. But for one day a year they come out in all their glory at the Annual Spring Queen pageant. The pageant is created by the workers and their trade union to bring their families together for an evening of solidarity and fun. After working for weeks on glamorous costumes, which one will be queen for a day? Set against the preparation for the 2003 pageant, this film explores the lives of working women and celebrates them as creators of beauty. Although the end of apartheid has not taken away the drudgery of repetitive factory labor, this pageant shows working class women inventing their own lively folk culture.

Reception to follow screening.
