28 UP South Africa: Trailer

December 8, 2014

Patterned on the acclaimed British documentary project, this South African series follows a group of people filmed first at age seven and then subsequently every seven years. The work offers diverse personal stories that collectively create a unique portrait of the social, cultural, and political history of a country. This fourth installment of the series, directed by Angus Gibson, the Oscar-nominated director of Mandela and Yizo Yizo, captures a group of 28-year-olds, first filmed as children living under apartheid, whose lives reflect the dizzying and complex layers of change their nation has undergone in the two decades since the repressive system’s fall.
