South Africa through the eyes of David Goldblatt is an achingly beautiful place.

From his early photographs of Apartheid South Africa to the removal of Rhodes’ statue from UCT, he has chronicled the country as faithfully as this film chronicles his life. Including interviews with Nadine Gordimer, Zanele Muholi and William Kentridge, the intimate portrait of man and country is captivating.

We trail him in his campervan, capturing the essence and heartbreak of a land, and which invites deeper scrutiny.

Through frank and disarming revelations he shares his views on faith, fear, death and desire. This is a film which invokes a need to see as Goldblatt sees, feel as he feels.
