The 8th annual Bahamas International Film Festival is just around the corner (December 1-4) and, in addition to films we've previewed on S&A like Yelling To The Sky and Restless City screening, here's an interesting documentary also on the roster.  It's called The Creators and it takes a look at the creative environment of post apartheid South Africa through the eyes of various artist.

The film reveals the lives of six different artist living in the region.  A brief discription states..."The story begins in the mind of Cashril Plus, a twelve-year-old animator and son of graffiti artist Faith47. Through Cashril's eyes, we see his mother paint the streets and forgotten townships haloing Cape Town. Weaving through the lives of Faith47, Warongx (afro-blues), Emile (hip hop), Sweat.X (glam rap), Blaq Pearl (spoken word) and Mthetho (opera), the film culminates in an intertwined story. Born in separate areas of a formerly-segregated South Africa, the artists recraft history -- and the impacts of apartheid -- in their own artistic languages. The lens reveals the impulse behind the artists’ social consciousness, the individuals’ eccentricities, and each creator’s unique form of expression. Diving into the current of subversive art which fuels South Africa’s many clashing and merging cultures, The Creators brings into focus the invisible connections among strangers' disparate lives -- and the creative expression used to traverse the divide."

The film was directed by Laura Gamse and Jacques de Villiers.
