LAWYERS PUSH FOR EVICTED RESIDENTS' RIGHTS TO BE RESPECTED
In 2009, we filmed with a community who had recently been evicted from the Siyanda informal settlement in order to allow for the construction of a road. One of the conditions of the eviction order was that the occupiers would be provided with permanent housing within a year. The deadline for doing so expired almost two years ago and nothing has been done to comply with the order.
Released earlier this year, Two Worlds is a documentary that according to its makers, "questions why South Africa has one of the greatest divides between rich and poor." Noting that inequality is no longer a phenomenon exclusive to the developing world and that poverty is now very much prevalent in the developed world, this 28 minute film uses South Africa as a case study to probe questions about inequality for a global audience.
Feature-length documentary film
Directed by Dara Kell & Christopher Nizza
When their shantytowns are threatened with mass eviction, three ‘young lions’ of South Africa’s new generation rise from the shacks and take their government to the highest court in the land, putting the promises of democracy to the test.
DEAR MANDELA will World Premiere at the Durban International Film Festival on July 26, 2011.
