Filmmaker to Filmmaker: Qubeka and Verster
This series highlights the work of two South African-based filmmakers, Jahmil X.T. Qubeka and François Verster, who each produce very different kinds of films, but are both at the leading edge of film production in South Africa and on the African continent. Their visit highlights the innovative and engaged work of a new generation of African filmmakers.
