COTC is a moral story about young people's challenges when following their dreams in the Big City. Facing alienation and financial hardships often can lead to bad decisions in life. In this film we were dramatising all these issues through fashion, filming methods, music and by using a wonderful dialog between copper and criminal. A particular conversation taken from Cry of the City, a true masterpiece of the 40's.
DA DA DARK
DA DA DARK
2020 | 4m 25s | Experimental
Why are we resorting back to Dada? Is it an answer to the new world war? Da Da Dark is a stream of consciousness interrogating a cycle of toxicity inflicted by the patriarchy and the way it affects womanhood in life and art. Characters are forced to compete with each other, being policed and controlled by the superior invincible power they are not aware of themselves. It is both a love letter & a sick note, loaded with fury for our non-sensical time that resists interpretation.

Roger The Rat
Roger The Rat
2020 | 25m 41s | Experimental
In the film, we follow Roger the Rat as he moves out of his restrictive hovel to an abandoned graveyard of discarded mannequins taking them to his house to dress and communicate with them. Initially Roger was ecstatic with his newfound companions as he could dress them, talk to them and share his feelings. As time passes, he becomes more and more frustrated by their lack of response leading to violence and irrational behaviour. The climax to the film is profound as the viewer comes to grips with what is beneath the Rat mask. A world class South African film team was responsible for the production of the film …Daniel Buckland, an internationally recognized Mime actor, the only human in the film reveals the character of Roger the Rat through actions not words. He was directed by Justin Elgie and filmed by Paul Gilpin. Postproduction work was performed by Mushroom Media and sound by Produce Sound. Throughout his career, Roger Ballen has pursued a singular artistic goal: to give expression to the human psyche and visually explore the hidden forces that shape who we are. In his new film, Ballen creates and documents a part-human, part-rat creature who lives an isolated life outside of mainstream society. Roger Ballen* (*1950, New York City) has lived in South Africa since 1982 and is one of the most important and original art photographers working today. He is best known for his probing, often challenging images that exist in a space between painting, drawing, installation, and photography that is commonly referred to as Ballenesque. To celebrate the release of the film version of the acclaimed Roger the Rat publication, Roger Ballen will be releasing a very limited edition series of exclusive NFT investment art collectibles. Proceeds will be donated to charity at the Roger Ballen Foundation.
