You can help fund a Soweto documentary
Generation Soweto is a new documentary in the works by California film maker Nisa Ahmad. With two trailers available for viewing, a story line focusing on the life of driven, up-and-coming millennials, and a rare look into how social issues are perceived by young people, you would think it was ready to hit screens tomorrow.
But like many small, independent films, Generation Soweto needs some serious cash to get going. With an Indiegogo crowdfunding page up and running, there’s a chance for serious support from fans and film lovers, but there’s quite a way to go. At last count, Ahmad had raised $12 000 (R154 000), but the target is $80 000. The film draws on four South Africans living in Johannesburg: the sister team behind fashion blog Sleepless in Soweto; an aspiring restaurant owner; and a suburban student, all of whom experience and respond to being young and living in South Africa in very different ways.
