Real stories from a free South Africa( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film is a fascinating case study of the emergence of social classes even within the same South African family. Two brothers live with their successful and ambitious mother, a market researcher, in a comfortable, middle class Soweto home. The older brother Nhlanhla has suffered a head injury which may be debilitating. In any case, he had no time in the tumultuous decade preceding the end of apartheid to receive an education that would let him take advantage of the opportunities offered by the new South Africa. Street-wise instead, he spends his time hanging out with his home boys, and, in his own words, "mostly taking care of the dog." His younger brother, Miles, is a 'born free, ' the first black student at his all white school and now a programmer with a promising career at Microsoft. Though fond of his brother, his life is in complete contrast to Nhlanhla's. Miles has very clear goals and deadlines for himself; his strong motivation shows what a difference it makes to know that there is no ceiling on one's ambitions

Sarafina!" was a beautiful movie. It is one of only a very few movies that make me cry.

Somalia-- it's my country( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Somalia is one of the poorest and most disadvantaged countries in the world. Divided by long-running and bitter conflict, the social and economic fabric of the country has been destroyed, leaving communities without access to their basic human rights. Although the northern parts of the country are attempting to build governance structure, the central and southern areas remain crippled by clan and factional warfare. There is no central government to provide services to communities. In what might appear to be a hopeless landscape there are growing signs of hope. A movement among the youth of Somalia has began. A movement away from violence and toward reconciliation and recovery. An optimistic and energetic movement fueled by ownership and vision but in need of support. A movement that 19 year old Fadhumo Musa Bille captures when she says "Somalia-- it's my country". This film captures the concerns that colour the young people's lives. Concerns like how to succeed in their studies, shape their future and cope with the threat of HIV/AIDS. In these concerns, they share the preoccupations of young people of their age all around the world
