Fiche Film
MOYEN Métrage | 2004
Project 10: My Yeoville
Pays concerné : Afrique du Sud
Durée : 48 minutes


Réal : Sello Molefe


Yeoville, one of Johannesburg’s oldest suburbs and long-time home to Orthodox and Hasidic Jews, became a non-racial bastion of anti apartheid struggles in the decade before South Africa’s first democratic election. It was once celebrated as a model of non-racial coexistence that attracted musicians, artists and political types, but today it is a symbol of crime and urban decay.

A personal lament for a South African urban village in decay.
