Jas Boude

Cape Town | South Africa | 2014 | 14min

“To push through the streets is the ultimate freedom. But what happens when the streets do not welcome you? Or get you killed? Scorning their government-built joke of a skate park which is too dangerous to use, the heroes of Jas Boude leave the Cape Flats ghetto – where Table Mountain remains mockingly out of reach – to infiltrate the CBD in search of a feeling and a power denied. Jaw-dropping cinematography and astute political conscience present a city which works for a few in this must-see short film.” ~ Encounters International Documentary Film Festival
