Born Free Films

In a few months, South Africa’s “born free generation” will cast their ballots in the country’s fifth democratic election for the first time. It’s been 20 years since the apartheid government lost power, and yet the country remains among the most unequal in the world. In Khayelitsha, Cape Town’s fastest growing township, residents are faced with poor sanitation, service delivery and infrastructure, in addition to increasing gang violence. These circumstances–paired with an inadequate education system that fails to prepare students for a future their parents fought for – begs the question: were they really “born free”?
