Réalisateurs : Tamsin Andersson, Karabo Lediga


On most Sundays, Soweto saw a « congregation » of young artists gather in open spaces in honour of a movement they simply call, Black Sunday. Black Sunday became a counter cultural institution, a movement of youth to counter the poverty, violence and post apartheid contradictions of the day. Through hip hop a new identity and community was formed outside of the categories of the past and the status insignias of the aspirational elite.It has subsequently catapulted some of its followers into the forefront of the South African music scene. This film explores the history of Black Sunday and questions it’s survival in an ever-changing contemporary SA.

Directors: Tamsin Andersson, Karabo Lediga
