Director Biography - Johnpheko M. Maphakela

As you've probably noticed, I'm a South African Filmmaker. I have lived in South Africa all my life. I have worked in remote villages in the poorest districts of South Africa like Eastern Cape in the east and in the metropolis of Durban and Cape Town.

I have a deep understanding of and, more importantly, sensitivity for the widely diverse cultures and people of South Africa.

Having worked for national television channels and organizations, I offer insights with a global perspective to my stories.

I have filmed and edited documentaries, reality tv shows, short films, music videos, drama and made-for-tv movies for national channels and companies including SABC, E.TV, Peu Communications Solutions, Plum Productions, New-Wave Productions, Blue Wizard and Sorele Media just to name a few.
