research south africa

In 1998 I made a research trip to south africa to collect material and ideas which had to lead to a film script. The entire report in English and in Dutch.

I did 55 interviews with a cross-section of South African people. This photo is from a boy who called himself Prince.

A part of the material was used as starting point for the script of the The Bird Can’t Fly. (Photo graveyard of Soweto).

I did the whole research with the help of Paolo Rapalino – cameraman (photo) and Cathy Henegan – production.
