July 20, 2015

Take a look at the trailer for new documentary ‘Generation Soweto’ (featuring Soweto residents Twiggy & Sedi, pictured). Created by veteran producer Nisa Ahmad, the independant doc is about South Africa’s millennials and centers on the youth culture of Cape Town and Johannesburg. Ahmad states: “Our project explores the current political and social climate, 20 years after the ending of Apartheid in South Africa.” Adding, “We look at how the job market, entrepreneurship, rising costs of living, technology in a developing country and gentrification is affecting communities and what that means for young South Africans. Because we live a globally connected world I felt these stories were stories people from all over the world could relate to.” Watch the trailer below and CLICK HERE to support the film’s completion.
