Youth Day Screening

The premiere screening of Anwar Omar’s ‘Salt River High: The Untold Story’ at the Homecoming Centre on 16 June – Youth Day – drew a full house! It was great to share in the viewing experience where the contribution of Cape Town schools in the 1976 uprisings, was foregrounded. It was a special treat to have the filmmaker Anwar Omar present to speak to the film and explain briefly why he thought it important to tell this story. It was an added bonus to hear from Geoff Mamputa who was a student activist in Langa during that same time period. Look out for further screenings or invite Anwar to do a screening in your community.
