Africa in Motion, Scotland, screens Africa Shafted
"Just watched the film as part of the Scotland African film festival in Edinburgh. Can't even describe how impressed I am. Long since a film has touched me this much." Johannes Gröber
Africa Shafted: Under One Roof - UK Premiere
It captures the views and opinions of people from every corner of the African continent who are now residing in South Africa. These immigrants and refugees, who have been seen as scary, undeserving or criminal by so many others in post-apartheid South Africa, are actually diverse, ordinary people, each with a dream of a better life and wisdom to share. Sadly the film also exposes the very prejudice that led to the violent xenophobic attacks that are still today an ongoing chapter in South Africa’s recent history.
