South by South is the SLG’s quarterly screening of bold and innovative African Cinema, programmed by Joseph A. Adesunloye. This iteration presents Action Comandante (2016) directed by Nadine Cloete. This documentary film traces the story of the South African freedom fighter Ashley Kriel who was shot and killed by police at 20 years old, and reflects on how he became a symbol of youth resistance in the 1980s.
The accompanying masterclass which runs from 4-6pm before the film screening, is open to all aspiring filmmakers. Masterclass participants are invited to view the film for free.
