CFMS End-of-Year Academic Screenings 2019

20 Oct 2019 - 17:15

CFMS 3rd year, honours and masters students presented their end-of-year academic screenings.

The honours screening was presented by a small team of three filmakers from the documentary production class (FAM400) to showcase their film. This included a discussion on their 30-minute documentary, The Red Place.

The Red Place follows the filmmaker’s personal explorations around notions of forgiveness within the context of violence and trauma in South Africa. 

The audience included a high profile respondent coming from Stellenbosch University, Professor Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela (Research Chair in Studies in Historical Trauma and Transformation at Stellenbosch University) who provided her insights through a response to the film.
