Q&A with filmmaker Petter Ringbom

After 20 years of democracy, South African artists, musicians, and designers add to the political discourse in a rapidly changing country. But how quickly is the society willing to change and how much resistance will it offer? The creative community takes on charged topics, such as political corruption, race, poverty, discrimination against the LGBT community, and whether defacing art in a public gallery is political expression, to varying degrees of backlash. Brett Murray, BLK JKS, Zanele Muholi, Gazelle, The Brother Moves On, Yolanda Fyrus, Fokofpolisiekar, The Smarteez, and many others are featured in this vibrant documentary where art, politics, and cultures collide.
