Carolina JaborBrazil – 2017

What if the only evidence of a crime is the testimony of a parent translating the words of her child? Rubens is a carefree, charismatic swimming instructor who finds himself accused of displaying inappropriate affection toward one of his students by the boy’s mother. Other parents and colleagues are only too eager to condemn him. Jabor’s incisive, unsettling debut maintains an intriguing, tension-filled air of mystery even as it exposes our own propensity to pass judgment. More

Sea Point Days

Alongside the southernmost urban centre in Africa, separating city from ocean, lies an unusual strip of land. The Sea Point Promenade - and the public swimming pools at its centre - forms a space unlike any other in Cape Town.  Right here, slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the business area, life is most paraded most unapologetically in all its forms… Over-made-up power-walkers speed past homeless persons kissing above the rocks and rent boys waiting for the next pick-up.
