CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION (article first published : 2003-06-5)

Children Of The Revolution, a documentary sponsored entirely by the National Film and Video Foundation to the tune of R100,000 will be screened on ETV on June 16 at 10h30, a morning screening on the youth-day holiday.

Directed by celebrated filmaker Zola Maseko, Children Of The Revolutionis produced and photographed by David Max Brown. Completed in June 2002, the one hour documentary follows filmmaker Zola Maseko as he tracks down five South African exiles 12 years after their return home.

In 1990, Zola Maseko and David Max Brown worked on a film in Tanzania about South African exiles who were returning home to an uncertain future. Now in 2002 they find the same five characters. The film opens with Zola in Johannesburg 2002, looking at the old archive from 1990. In narration he explains why he felt the need to look for some of his old comrades and document their progress on film.

This is a story of how exile shapes dreams and of the contradictions and challenges that prevail. Children of the Revolution. It is also the story of how some ordinary young people have exchanged the camaraderie of a political life in the ANC for groupings and gangs of a very different kind.
