Director Statement

" My stories appear to have a recurring theme that focuses on a distinctly youthful South African point of view. The characters in my films always act from a point of loss of innocence, inner turmoil and are always caught in between two worlds and trying to understand how to fit in either world by avoiding those issues aforementioned. And this is perhaps informed by struggle with loss and fitting in every dynamic of two worlds and making sense of it all and being very observant." - Bongani Morgan
