This daring experimental work from filmmaker and artist Kaganof is an account of the events around the 2015 Fees Must Fall movement that took hold of the country and continues to be part of the national political narrative.

Shot in black and white, with news footage in colour, the film expresses the free-flowing and sometimes chaotic nature of the movement and the events of the time – as well as the response from the state.

The idiosyncratic use of editing techniques and the subversion of formal structures take this film beyond mere documentation.

It’s a philosophical critique of neoliberal education policies and the failures of the new South Africa to live up to its constitutionally mandated promises.
