some first impressions of the pics I took this weekend at our Umthombo Camp. Soon many many more, which you can find online here: www.flickr.com/photos/35308914@N02/ Am sorting them, reducing the sizes to put them online, adjusting some levels….a whole mission.
Just went to see the movie ‘district 9’. Heard great stories about it. Actually know one of the actors. South African actors. Yes, it is a good movie (not my kind of movie though) and I think it will be a major international hit BUT i wonder what the underlying message is supposed to be and curious about the reasoning behind the movie … If the producer indeed wants to make the reference to South African history, apartheid, displacements of blacks, white and blacks,…..yes I think that the underlying message can then be understood by South Africans….but I do not think that this movie wakes up the international public in a way that triggers them to fight injustice, wake up and see what races do to each other, how we alienate other cultures. I was hoping the movie would have that effect…
yeah for Umthombo. We’ll spread the message in a positive way. Looking at what is possible when different cultures work together in harmony.
