Sweden-based directors Teddy Goitom and Benjamin Taft set out to capture the creative street vibes of South Africa. In Stocktown X: South Africa, we meet industrious young people around South Africa who construct their own culture and create an audience for their art. The work of musicians, self-described “ghetto fabulous” fashion designers, video gamers, and photographers are highlighted. This vibrant and entertaining short documentary offers a fresh perspective on youth culture and creativity in contemporary South Africa.

In English and Afrikaans with subtitles.
