Don´t miss the premiere of the documentary

Cape Town – Mother City?

Cape Town is the second-most populous city in South Africa and its most popular destination for tourists. It is especially known for its beautiful beaches, Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, Robben Island and the Cape Peninsula with famous Cape Point. Because of its rich and diverse history, it is also one of the most multicultural cities in the world.

Cape Town is also known as the ‘Mother City’, but for those living on the streets the perceptions are not the same…

Some of the people appearing in the documentary will be invited to the screening, including two former homeless youngsters from the My Life street children’s organisation.

Inspired by Ryan Brown Dalton and Dayana Dreke

Director’s Biography:
Tresor Ilunga Mukuna was born in Lubumbashi, DR Congo, as one of seven children. Tresor refers to himself as a “member of the human being community”. After completing High School at the end of 2007, he could not study film in Kinshasa as there is no film school of quality and the private ones are too expensive, but also because of the injustice that is happening in his home country. It is dangerous for film makers to express themselves, to tell stories about the truth and to be the voice of the voiceless. That´s why he decided to come to South Africa and was fortunate to become an intern at Visual Impact – a step closer to his dream to become a film maker.
