Girlztalk: what does it mean to be a girl growing up in South Africa today?
GirlZtalk is a documentary film that follows a road trip into the rural heartland of Limpopo, capturing the distinct voices of girls, both urban and rural, as they explore the realities of what it means to be a girl growing up in South Africa today.
The film aims to put a face to the overwhelming statistics that threaten to suffocate the voice of girls in every community of our country.
The issues of teenage pregnancies, exposure to violence and the stigma of sexuality is explored through ‘expression platforms’ such as theatre, song, poetry and dance. The film creates a platform to capture the voices of young women and through this documentary, aims to engage a wider audience to participate in the future of this voice.
