Look at town­ship re­al­ity

CityPress - - Trending -

about fa­mil­ial bonds, the film looks at the lim­its to which in­di­vid­u­als can be pushed and the grue­some, re­al­is­tic end­ings that are so com­mon­place in some of South Africa’s ur­ban spa­ces.

There is no pulling punches here, and in­stead of sub­tle metaphors or cin­e­matic plays at the un­seen, the film shows things as they are.

You don’t have to imag­ine it be­cause it’s there in liv­ing colour, re­flect­ing back against the re­al­ity of a space just a few min­utes’ drive from the com­fort of Joburg’s leafy sub­urbs.
