“What does it mean to be a girl growing up in South Africa today?”
GirlZtalk is an award winning documentary, filmed in 2014 in South Africa by the internationally awarded photographer and filmmaker, Pep Bonet.
Based on a road trip taking 20 girls from the townships of Johannesburg into the rural heartland of South Africa, we put a face to the statistics that seem to be suffocating the voice of girls in every community of the country.
It is intimate journey documenting both the individual and communal voice of girls from an urban and rural perspective. We explore the realities of their lives and what hopes they have for the future as South Africa celebrates 20 years of democracy.
The film is an extension of our commitment to provide girls, from both rural and urban communities, a platform to share their voice.
Together with Steps.co.za, GirlZtalk has been shown in communities and festivals throughout Southern Africa.
GirlZtalk is currently being distributed internationally by Journeyman Pictures. www.journeyman.tv
