From Afro-Cyber Resistance to appropriations of found footage, these vanguard works allow for consideration of the varied recent directions taken by South African artists working with moving image. They span not only documentary, performance, animation and the cinematic, but also embrace digital innovation afforded by the internet, image manipulation, surveillance and mobile technology.
Programme duration: 65 minutes.
