You are cordially invited to the screening of

Thenjiwe Nkosi

BORDER FARM (2010, 30′) is a docudrama about a group of Zimbabwean
“border  jumpers” who make their way across the Limpopo River to seek
work on farms  in the far north of South Africa. It is part of a larger
project conceived  by director Thenjiwe Nkosi, working with a group of
migrant farm workers  living on the border. Written, performed and crewed
in part by the group,  BORDER FARM portrays the many-layered drama of
forced migration and raises  questions about national borders and their
impact on individuals and  communities. The screening will be followed by a
discussion with Polly  Savage (SOAS and RCA; and former MA student at the
Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths).
