About the Movie
Step into the lives of artists sculpting South Africa's future from the fragments of a tumultuous past. Born into different sections of the formerly-segregated country, the artists re-craft history - and the impacts of apartheid - in their own artistic languages. How does creative expression traverse the divide? The Creators highlights the invisible connections among strangers' intertwined lives, exposing an intimate and deeply revealing portrait of modern day South Africa. The Creators introduces the chaotic sociocultural reality of modern day South Africa through the eyes of its diverse artists. The documentary brings into focus the invisible connections among strangers' disparate lives, and the creative expression used to traverse the divide. Ranging from graffiti artist and mother Faith47 to self-taught opera legend Mthetho Mapoyi, the artists craft music, visual art and dance to communicate across boundaries and refute apartheid's myth of separation. An intimate, refreshing, and deeply revealing look at those remolding the legacy of apartheid.
Really cool, engaging, and informative. Wish more Docu's were like this.
The Creators is a story about people living their lives in a world that most of us will never know. The filmmakers clearly cared very deeply about their message and the subjects they were interviewing. It's a wonderful tale of how Art plays a role in our existence no matter where you're from. Take some time to expand your view and give it a watch. You'll be glad that you did. :)
