IFAS News & Events - du 28 juin 2017


Starts This Friday
Deep Blue / Middle C 

After sold out screenings at this year's Encounters Documentary Film Festival, 'Deep Blue / Middle C' returns for a limited run here at The Bioscope.

Deep Blue / Middle C (2017)
Directed by: Bryan Little. 60min

This psychedelic surf film emerges from the Elands Bay dustbowl like an LED encrusted crayfish. Acclaimed Fokofpolisiekar and African Cypher director (and two-time Encounters Audience Award winner) Little recruited musicians, sculptors, artists, a coastal forager, underwater wildlife filmmakers, conservation biologists, drone pilots – to spend 10 days and nights at a camp site where they surfed, created artworks, and worked with the local community, celebrating that coast and ocean. Surfing the line between fiction and non, this strangely surreal dreamscape is an invigorating dip into the stream of consciousness of an eccentric and wildly talented bunch.

Tickets R45

Jeppe on a Friday

Seminal Johannesburg documentary 'Jeppe on a Friday' returns to the Bioscope screen, inspired by The Museum of African Design's current exhibition Johannesburg: Unfinished City

MOAD is thrilled to be part of the 130-year-old design experiment called Johannesburg. Unfinished City, our latest exhibition, unearths Johannesburg's history and uncharted potential.
Jeppe on a Friday will add to this conversation, opening up dialogue between African immigrants and the local people of Jeppestwon and the urban whites which come to visit Jeppestown on a regular basis. The story will add to the understanding of what it means to be living in the inner city - looking at hardships and the realities that the inner city populace face.
Jeppe on A Friday
Part travelogue, part urban allegory – and a fresh perspective on Jozi. Filmmakers Lalloo and Walsh, drawing on a rich tradition of city- centred direct cinema practitioners, bring together a team of women directors, and offer a curious record of life in urban Jozi that de-mystifies the oft-maligned metropolis. Shot over the course of a single day and along the length and breadth of Jeppe, we meet 5 charming characters.

Tickets R45

After two sold out screenings at Encounters 2017 and a sold out screening on Youth Day, The Bioscope is proud to be hosting a run of the seminal documentary, Uprize!

Directed by: Sifiso Khanyile 58min

The Soweto uprising of 1976 is well documented: students peacefully protested the mandatory inclusion of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction. By nightfall over 200 lay dead. The less well-documented ‘76 protest action by activists in Bonteheuwel, Langa and the Cape Flats, and student deaths, are the heart of this film. Personal reflections of struggle stalwarts Fatima Dike, Dr Mongane Wally Serote and Duma. Ndlovu consider the states’ brutal response, the influence of the Black Consciousness Movement and their disappointment with the current state of the nation. It’s a glimpse into 70s SA, the cost of the fight for education and freedom, and especially relevant 40 years later as university students take on the ANC government demanding free, quality education.
