In the Shadows of Apartheid first episode

April 16, 2010

Joseph, a refugee from South Sudan, becomes Helge's partner down the Tugela River.

The second edit of In the Shadows of Apartheid‘s first episode is soon ready. In this episode we follow Helge Hjelland down the Tugela Falls, the worlds second largest waterfall, and further down the Tugela River to the Indian Ocean.

It’s a spectacular journey where Helge Hjelland meets Joseph, a refugee from South Sudan. They become partners down the river. We are impressed by both and excited about doing some test screenings in the following days.

Still much remains, both the music score and animation sequences are not set, but they are close and on the way.
