VIDEO: Luister (Listen)- Deep Racism at South Africa's Stellenbosch University
Luister (Listen)- Deep Racism at South Africa's Stellenbosch University
Luister is a documentary about the lives of students of colour who
attend Stellenbosch University, a South African institution of higher
learning. In a series of interviews, students recount instances of
racial prejudice that they continue to experience in the town of
Stellenbosch, and the enormous challenges that they face due to the use
of Afrikaans as a language of teaching at the university. Luister is a
film about Afrikaans as a language and a culture. It is a film about the
continuing racism that exists within a divided society. It is a film
about a group of students whose stories have been ignored. Luister is
the Afrikaans word for Listen.
