As the editing is finalizing in the steady hands of our editor Torkel Gjørv, we are again questioning ourselves:
What is the right title?
The documentary film is definitely about the adventurer Helge Hjelland, crossing South Africa in a canoe on two rivers with the same source. It is certainly about the diverse meetings through the African continent, and a portrait of the best and worst in human kind. And it is also a refugee story, and a portrait of a country still struggling with its heritage from apartheid.
Is it a Journey through South Africa? Or is it a A journey in the shadows of Apartheid? What about My South African Diary? Or A South African Odyssey? Or Through the Shadows of Apartheid? We have also received the suggestion A South African adventure?
Hopefully the title will be settled within a week. Stay tuned and keep sending suggestions!
