Where Do I Stand?

Where Do I Stand? – a documentary film that explores the experiences of seven young Capetonians during the xenophobic violence in South Africa in 2008 - will be shown at the Labia on Orange cinema in Cape Town on Sunday 19 September at 6.15pm, on Monday 20 September at 8:30pm and on Tuesday 21 September at 8:30pm.

When xenophobic attacks broke out across South Africa in May 2008, many found themselves caught off guard, shocked by... violence that felt like a violation of the principles of their newly democratic nation. Over two months, 62 people were killed, hundreds wounded and over a hundred thousand displaced. In the midst of this violence, many young people, clad in the bright greens and maroons of their school uniforms, looted neighborhood shops while some of their classmates, refugees themselves, fled to safer ground. Some youth tried to find a way to help, but still more stood by, watching from their windows or on television.

WHERE: Labia on Orange
WHEN: 19th September 2010
