Filmmaker to Filmmaker: François Verster and Jahmil X. T. Qubeka

“Filmmaker to Filmmaker” prompts a conversation between and shows the work of two South African filmmakers: Jahmil Qubeka and François Verster. They will discuss filmmaking and the state of the art of African film from the perspective of South Africa. Both have ample professional experience outside the continent, and they will speak to questions of African filmmakers as global media artists. Qubeka and Verster produce very different kinds of films, but both are at the leading edge of film production in South Africa and on the African continent. Their visit highlights the innovative and engaged work of a new generation of African filmmakers.
