Africa Shafted: under one roof

55 min - South Africa Ingrid Martens

The film is a serious, poignant, humorous, and uplifting universal documentary. It is filmed in Ponte building, Africas tallest residential apartment, built during apartheid in1976 for white people only. Today it is feared, as it is now home to more than 4000 people from every corner of Africa. It gives you an honest glimpse at the tragic reality of xenophobia through the eyes of people from every corner of Africa, living under one roof. It also coveys a powerful message, that through dialogue and understanding, respect starts to take root.
