The Creators (2012)
1h 29min · Documentary, History, Music · 22 May 2012
Born into separate areas of the formerly-segregated country, The Creators recraft history in their own artistic languages. Weaving through the lives of Faith47 (street art), Warongx (afro-blues), Emile (hip-hop), Sweat.X (performance art), Blaq Pearl (spoken word) and Mthetho (opera), the film culminates in an intertwined multi-plot. As we grow closer to the individuals we notice stark differences between their perspectives, exposing an intimate, refreshing, and deeply revealing portrait of those remolding the legacy of apartheid.
