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.

Helge Hjelland towards the diamond mines at the border of Namibia.

The first rouch cut of In the shadows of Apartheid is soon ready.

After focusing on key scenes, and a strict editorial plan we are still twice as long as we should, and not yet at the end of the journey. There are some hard choices to be made in the near future.

Would it not be nice if a television documentary could be as long as the video material needed it to be? Well, the audience will certainly not get bored.
