Manenberg: A Community in Transition

Description

Manenberg was built as dormitory style suburb for the non-white (colored) people of the city of Cape Town during Apartheid. The city over the years was taken over with gangsterism, violence, and drugs, and became one of the most dangerous cities in all of the cape flats. Recently there has been a movement within Manenberg to reclaim the vibrant city, and change for the good. This documentary is just a small glimpse of the many stories you will hear on Manenberg Avenue. I spent four weeks in Cape Town and serving at Manenberg was one of my most profound experiences. Special thanks to SHAWCO, Dr. Brain Heuser, Geordie Brackin, Kelly Young and the VISAGE kids.
