A RED RIBBON AROUND MY HOUSE (Portia Rankoane, 26 minutes, 2001)

Pinky is a middle aged flamboyant and funny mother who owns a bar. She is also an AIDS activist and community educator who is HIV+ and we leave the film watching what Pinky does best – living.

STRIKE A ROCK (Aliki Saragas, 84 minutes, 2017)
In August 2012 in an event reminiscent of the apartheid era, South African police opened fire on striking miners killing 34, wounding 78 and arresting hundreds. It became known as the Marikana Massacre. Widows and other women in the community formed a grassroots organization demanding justice and reparations. The film closely follows two women involved, Thumeka who continues her activism in the organization and Primrose who leaves and gets elected to Parliament with the Economic Freedom Fighters Party.
