The uprising of Hangberg : eyewitness accounts detailing human rights violations during the uprising of Hangberg( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Uprising of Hangberg is an activist documentary filmed by Dylan Valley and Aryan Kaganof in response to the events of a particular day. The original music score is by Stellenbosch University music student, Natasje van der Westhuizen. The documentary provides raw footage and eyewitness accounts of the attempts by the Western Cape Provincial Administration and the City of Cape Town to evict residents from their homes in Hangberg, Hout Bay in the Western Cape, edited to both highlight the brutality of the riots but also the failed promises of local politicians, a microcosm of the failed promises of the larger South Africa. On 21 September 2010, Cape Town Metro Police officers entered the township to forcibly remove several township residents and destroy their homes which were built above the determined firebreak. The Rastafarian community in Hangberg is central to the narrative developed in the film, which also documents Rastafarian Nyabingi, a resident of Hangberg chanting and drumming the traditional music of the Rastafarian religion. The Uprising of Hangberg works not only on the artistic level, but also as a political intervention enabling a marginalized community to speak of their oppression and trauma

Next we see students discussing the prioritisation of white students at Wits.... A prominent theme in the documentary is the plight of black service workers at Wits"--witsvuvuzela.com, viewed July 6, 2016

Techno : space and flow in the radical frame by Aryan Kaganof( Visual )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Dutch and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Techno is music to lose yourself in, to forget the daily drudgery for a while. The artistic imperatives and the musicological philosophical principles of the new generation of musicians and producers. It's not light material, and is indeed at times heavy going, although that has everything to do with the choice of musicians and theareticians interviewed. What makes techno: space and flow in the radical frame such an exceptional documentary is the manner in which the interviews are woen into a 50 minute long techno-video clip. The film maker has fully exploited all the existing digital video techniques in order to showcase the dizzying possibilities of the medium
