This was originally a screenshot from a short film which was shot ad edited by me and a bunch of my classmates for an assignment relaying the concept of 'Invisible Cities'. We were tasked to re-imagine two different cities in Africa and create a context linking the cities by using real modern stories which exist within our continent. This story portrays a young immigrant entering Johannesburg for the first time, with only a story and a dream. However, with the whole situation regarding xenophobia, the promised city of gold is not what it seems.
