“When the world comes together at an event like the FIFA World Cup 2010, there’s typically more than just a trophy at stake. In South Africa, the country hosting this year’s tournament, race relations surely stand out as one of the more complex issues. In this stop-motion short, titled Go South Africa!, the topic is examined in a morality tale involving soccer balls. The short was directed by Robbert-Jan Vos, and art directed and animated by Renske Mijnheer.”

Animals Are Beautiful People (All 9 Parts)

16 04 2010

“This South African film tells about life in these areas in a humorous way. It was directed and written by Jamie Uys, who is most famous for his later film The Gods Must Be Crazy.

The film begins in the Namib desert, with the narrator saying: ‘You’d think nobody could make a living here.’ But the film proves the opposite and shows the lives of the animals that live there. The narrator concludes: ‘But to the Oryx and the little creatures of the Namib, this waterless, hostile desert is paradise.’ “
