South African Documentary Probes the Power of Dialogue

Molly Blank’s latest documentary, Where do I Stand, captures a moment of South Africa’s very recent past through a lens of, what South African Ambassador to the US, Mr Ebrahim Rasool described as, the “unadulterated, unsophisticated words of young people who haven’t gotten the rails to sophisticate the discourse”.

In fact, Mr Rasool pointed out that the documentary about the xenophobic attacks that broke out across South Africa in May 2008, provide vivid evidence of the destructive power of the nation’s deficient nature of dialogue. As such, he hailed the documentary for its universal relevance as being “… a lesson about South Africa but … a message for the world.”
