Adi Loveland’s Doccie on Joburg; best value for R50

Documentary on ‘surviving Joburg’

Am so excited … I won a prize!    Adrian of Fifty Two (weekly suggestions of things to to in Jozi) asked for readers’ suggestions of  what to do in the genre A.C.L. (Arts Culture Leisure).  My suggestion of the Nirox Sculpture Park won me second prize:  the mad crazy 52 minute doccie on Joburg by Adi Loveland. Called ‘Unhinged: Surviving Joburg’,  it’s whacky, quirky, frenetic,  very funny and hard-hitting. Making use of  lots of fast speed filming, fragmented images, jerky transitions between frames, uncomfortable and close-up camera angles,  hand held camers, the medium is the message: Jozi as fast paced, constantly changing and on the move, uneasy, edgy yet vibrant, energized and happening.    It’s really worth getting so beg your local Musica or Look ‘n Listen to stock it. Or log onto It’ll set you back R50 plus postage.   For more info and an interview with Adi see
