Africa Shafted: under one roof
A timeless, universal and award winning documentary filmed entirely in the lifts of Africa's tallest apartment, Ponte Towers, downtown Johannesburg, South Africa: 8 lifts, 400 flats and 4400 people.
We do hope the wonderful Ponte people inspire you to question a few perceptions about Africa and our common humanity as they did us, and so many others.
