Unlimited Global Alchemy : Screening and Talk

Rachel Gadsden


Booking details available from June

A special screening of short films, featuring Rachel Gadsden and the Bambanani Group – Nondumiso Hlwele, Noloyiso Balintulo, Bongiwe Mba, Thozama Ndevu, Thobani Ncapai and Zodwa Somlayi – which were shot on location in Khayelitsha Township and at SOBEIT Studios, Cape Town, in October 2011.

Made by Gadsden with filmmakers Cliff Bestall and Deborah May, each portrait offers a glimpse of the world as seen through its subject’s eyes; at turns joyful, resolute, defiant, heartfelt and poetic. Viewed together, the series presents multiple reflections on the political and personal currents explored throughout Unlimited Global Alchemy. All films are fully subtitled in English.

The screening will be followed by a discussion and Q & A with Rachel Gadsden, Nondumiso Hlwele, Bongiwe Mba and Thobani Ncapai.

The Unlimited Global Alchemy catalogue, which includes a DVD insert of the seven films, is available here
