Gangster Project | Teboho Edkins | South Africa | 2011 | 55 min
In Cape Town, South Africa, one of the world’s most violent and unequal societies, a young white film student sets out with his cameraman to make a “gangster film,” with real gangsters. After a lengthy search for a suitably ‘cinematic’ character, he finds the perfect gang and settles into their everyday rhythm. The reality soon catches up and the claustrophobic gangster life doesn’t exactly fit to the expectations.
