Film students wow audience

09 July 2014, 13:09

An overwhelmed and tear-drenched Nolubabalo Yantolo walked away with the prestigious Best Director and People’s Choice awards at WSU’s annual School of Journalism documentary screening last night.

Yantolo’s “White Wash” is a post 1994 socio-economic “conversion” inspired picture that casts a wide eye on how we have come to see more of a white homeless and poverty stricken community on our streets.

“I decided to tell the story because in the black community we tend to make assumptions that all white people are well-off, but yet we see more and more of them begging on the streets.”

“I now understand that it’s not always about the colour of your skin. It’s about the circumstances,” added Yantolo.

Other films produced by the WSU third-year journalism students reflected an array of pertinent societal issues including the use of performance enhancement drugs in sports, inter-racial relationships, the poultry industry and gender equality.

The film titles that were showcased include: Hatch, Fifty Fifty Bafazi, White Wash, Mdantsane Home of Champions, Scaly Passions, Crossing the Line and Juiced.

Faculty of Business Management Sciences and Law, Dean, Dr Kofi Acheampong accompanied by newly appointed WSU Council Member Advocate Lusindiso Matoti, said it is important that young people of the Eastern Cape continue telling their own stories.

“I am impressed. Some of us see this everyday but never actually think about the contributing factors leading to the situation. And I have to say that there’s no one better to tell these stories than you, the future leaders of this country,” concluded Kofi.

Also present at the screening was broadcast expert, ex-eNCA sports presenter and newly appointed WSU broadcasting lecturer, Jeff Moloi.

Walter Sisulu University’s School of Journalism and Media Studies has been identified by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO)as one of Africa’s 12 centres of excellence in journalism.
