Unshackling the Vision

South Africa Alive & In Person, Program Three

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Brian Tilley’s narrative The Line (the most sensational program to appear on South African t.v.) weaves a 3-part tale of the complexity of current South African politics in the age of violence and a fast-changing society. Marianne Kaplan’s award-winning documentary Songololo: Voices of Change depicts the powerful role of contemporary black South Africans through the work of writer and storyteller Gcina Mhlope and poet-activist Mzwakhe Mbuli.
