We have successfully produced a documentary called “CAPE TOWN – MOTHER CITY?”, starting in May 2010 and finishing post-production early 2011 with an awesome Premiere taking place at the Cape Town Democracy Institute Centre IDASA the 2nd of Feb 2011.
The concept of ‘Cape Town – Mother City?’ was inspired by Ryan Brown Dalton, and my girlfriend Dayana Dreke, who works in the NGO sector and my own experience of living on the street for a few days. I’m really sensitive to injustice, that’s my personality, so it was very painful to live on the streets. It’s very cold outside and it´s depressing to see other homeless people as they are really suffering. Through my own short experience, I understood what it means to be homeless and that there are just normal people like you and I with serious problems.
The good news: this documentary won an honorable mentioning `Making a Difference Award´ at the COMMFFEST, the Global Community Film Festival 2011 in Toronto, Canada.
Another exciting project we had towards the end of this year was that we were asked to document the Jewish-Christian Concert “JERUSALEM – WOVEN DESTINY CONCERT” on 16th of October 2011 in the amazing ZipZap Circus in Cape Town and produce a DVD for the interested audience. It was organized by the team of Elizabeth Robertson Campbell and her husband Jamie, Erez Shaked and Hanli Slabbert, and the event was sold out with more than 750 people in the audience. The DVD was finalized on 25th of November 2011 and is available for sale. For the DVD Orders Click here
