A week after Poppie Nongena won the film of the year at the BRICS film festival, the film's star Clementine Mosimane says not much has changed in South Africa since apartheid. The actress, known for her roles in Isibaya and Soul City, also shares her memories of her grandmother as a domestic worker, and growing up during the Soweto Uprising where her mother was a journalist.
