Saturday, April 18th at 6:00 pm
A graphically satiric painting of South African President Jacob Zuma sets in motion this fascinating look at art, identity, and freedom of expression in the would-be "rainbow nation" 20 years into the era of multiracial democracy. Petter Ringbom's film offers a view of today's South Africa as seen by a bevy of activist artists and creatively bursting musicians - from genre-busting collective The Brother Moves On to flamboyant Afro-funkster Gazelle to Afrikaans punk band Fokofpolisiekar - whose work casts an optimistic eye on the country's democratic, pluralistic future while challenging the creeping authoritarianism and continued social divides of its present.

The Orchestra: Claudio Abbado & The Mozart Orchestra Musicians plus Bicycle Notes and live music.
