English

CROSSROADS, an informal black settlement near Cape Town, was a site of resistance when husbands, wives & children refused to be separated by apartheid’s pass laws forcing them to live thousands of miles apart. They built houses and a remarkable community there and upheld family life threatened with destruction.


Lindy Wilson began filming the forced removals of people into segregated’group areas’, because she saw that history was being removed without trace in South Africa.

With a borrowed 16mm camera she shot Crossroads (her first film) in 1978.
