Join directors Nathalie Masduraud, Valérie Urréa and photographer Lesley Lawson for a panel discussion and film screening of South Africa, Chromatic Portraits. The documentary South Africa, Chromatic Portraits (2014) depicts forty years of political events in South Africa through the lens of its photographers. These range from David Goldblatt, the founding father of South African documentary photography, and the historical members of Afrapix, an independent agency that was inspired by Magnum and created in 1982, to the contemporary photography scene and the heirs of this “Struggle Photography”, including Jodi Bieber, Pieter Hugo, Zanele Muholi and Thabiso Sekgala.
