Film Screening: Word Down The Line
Join us for the screening of Word Down The Line and a conversation led by Tshepo Masuku, our book guru.
It is 2014 and legendary South African poet Lesego Rampolokeng goes down the line to fathom whether we have
anything to celebrate after 20 years of democracy. Where are we? Where have we come from? Where
are we going? Are we where we should be?
Lesego engages poets of social conscience, poets whose work he has grappled with, poets he has
argued with, been inspired by.
As he takes the tracks Lesego speaks to James Matthews, Keorapetse Kgositsile, Mafika Gwala, Jeremy Cronin, Boitumelo Mofokeng, Maishe Maponya, Sandile Dikeni, Vonani Bila, Khulile Nxumalo, Kgafela Oa Magogodi, Gift (Makahafula Vilakazi) Ramashia.
A film by mehlo-maya (eye-to-the-sun) and Sidewalk Productions.
Supported by the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF)
