Scenes from a Dry City

by Simon Wood, Francois Verster  South Africa 2018 13'

Due to the ongoing drought in western South Africa, the water reserves in Cape Town are dwindling. Strict restrictions on water use have been imposed to delay Day Zero, when the city’s water supply will be turned off. The film shows drainage canals juxtaposed with crowds protesting water privatization, collective prayers for rain, illegal car washes, and golf courses. Different ways to confront the fear of an unprecedented crisis that reveals racial and social inequalities.
