Good Hope not only identifies the key problems but also offers the solutions, highlighting the work of the next generation of leaders, entrepreneurs and thinkers currently grappling with these challenges.
Good Hope, a new feature-length documentary from award-winning filmmaker Anthony Fabian, will be virtually launched on June 16.
It explores some of the challenges faced in post-apartheid South Africa; inequality, racial tensions, the rise of populism, xenophobia, gender imbalances, corruption, unemployment and poor education.
The documentary focuses on the young, post-apartheid generation, who not only focus on the challenges, but offer solutions.
The online launch on Youth Day will feature a panel discussion on the themes uncovered by the documentary and assess how the lessons learnt could help other societies tackling racial inequality to build bridges.
The panelists, including those featured in the documentary, are:
- Anthony Fabian, director, Good Hope
- Katherine Leach-Lewis, producer, Good Hope
