movie premiere: watch georgina warner and imraan christian’s short film “jas boude”, a day-in-the-life portrait of cape flats skateboarding collective 20sk8

February 25, 2016

“Jas Boude” is a documentary short film by filmmakers Georgina Warner and Imraan Christian that chronicles a day in the life of Cape Flats skateboarding collective, 20sk8, who are trying to overcome the systematic and structural inequalities that continue to be deeply felt throughout Cape Town. The film touches on the “Land Areas Act”, enforced by apartheid, and it’s continued integration in the function of the city today. This conversation about the lingering structures, systems, and affects of colonialism and apartheid are particularly relevant as protests about access and inequality from South African university students persist.

“Jas Boude” debuted at Encounters International Documentary film festival in 2015 and has been nominated for best student film at the South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTA). Watch the documentary below.
