UPRIZE!, Sifiso Khanyile, SA 2017, 58 min.
U P R I Z E ! is a cultural voyage and homage into what shaped what we know today as the 1976 Soweto Uprising. Using the protests as a backdrop for creative and cultural influences of the late 60s and early 70. Cultural workers who were artists / writers / musicians / thinkers / teachers / policy makers / journalists and participants of the protests, as well as the youth themselves, speak about the world that shaped the youth of 1976. We look at access to culture at the time, the state of broadcast media, state propaganda and censorship. We explore their everyday world, and the spark that led to the historic uprising.
