Doors of culture shall be opened

The doors of culture shall be opened! (director/camera/prod) 1982/83

In December 1982 a conference was held in Amsterdam under the title “The Voice of Resistance”. Towards 100 in exile living artists from South Africa gathered with Dutch artists to debate South African culture in “De Bali” and “De Populier”. The African National Congress and the Anti Apartheid Movement were the organizers. The cultural accord between the South African Government and the Dutch Government had been broken but the alternative accord with the majority of the SA population was not yet established. A vibrant exposure of SA culture is presented in this film.
