Step into the lives of six artists sculpting South Africa’s future from the fragments of a tumultuous past. Born in different areas of the formerly-segregated country, the artists separately recraft history — and the impacts of apartheid — in their own artistic languages. How does creative expression traverse the divide?
The Creators was shot and edited entirely by South Africans, the majority of whom were trained while on the job and now work professionally in South Africa’s burgeoning film industry.
