Description

Khalo Matabane, a young Black filmmaker in search of the new South Africa, travels in a mini-bus taxi with a hand-held camera throughout nine provinces. The taxi serves as an open forum for ordinary people to talk about their feelings on such controversial issues as land, race, language, globalization, democracy, identity and violence. This film expresses the hopes and dreams of the youth-the next generation of people trying to find their way and their voice in the new South Africa.
