Event Details

Empty Promises, an independent documentary by two Cal students, explores community mobilization in South Africa's informal settlements against eviction and failure of service delivery by the local government. The documentary addresses the following questions: Why do community members mobilize? Which factors lead individuals to protest? How do individuals define their aims/objectives? And where do members place themselves in relation to the police and local government?

We interview activists, leaders, and community members from six informal settlements (slums) in Johannesburg and Durban in an attempt to portray the political landscape of post-Apartheid South Africa. The film was independently funded and made in collaboration with the Socioeconomic Rights Institute of South Africa (SERI).
