Experiencing Interruptions?

Eina (Ouch)

Eina is a documentary about a Rhodes University television student who sets out to make a film about the effects of corporal punishment as he has experienced them first hand. He takes us on a journey with three other students who have experienced a similar ordeal.

The film by Michael Dorfling is based on a personal experience he went through in high school. The beating he took in class emotionally scarred him and he finally decided to come out and talk about his story. Along with his television crew, he finds three other intriguing survivors of corporal punishment and together they begin a cathartic process of healing.
