Living in Cape Town, I sometimes feel like life is a movie here all the time. With its big ups, like the gorgeous mountains, the beautiful sea and friendly people, and deep downs, such as poverty, criminality, discrimination and corruption.
Throughout my work as a Social Worker here in Cape Town, I keep meeting very unique characters throughout the city. What intrigued me about their stories is that, even though their circumstances are very tough and unthinkable for people from a first-world country like myself, they do everything to keep their heads up.
In June 2019, their stories inspired me to start my first own, fully filmed, edited and funded short documentary series, called Capetonian Characters. Scroll below to find the difficult, though empowering stories of these special characters.
Would you like to support me creating more documentaries like these and giving more people a voice to speak from their perspective?
