THESE STREETS BELONG TO US (South Africa, 2011, 54 mins)
Directors: Lisa Henry & Shareen Anderson
Q&A with filmmakers will follow screening
These Streets Belong To Us looks at how ordinary South Africans are coping with the scourge of crime and its accompanying violence. The film tells several stories coming out of three different Johannesburg communities; Kensington, a middle class suburb that is jolted into action after a street security guard is murdered while on duty; Alexandra, a mostly poor black township that has formed a community policing forum that patrols the streets in an unconventional way and lends a helping hand to the overburdened police; and Hillbrow, a densely populated inner city neighborhood, which was a "no go" zone for police for many years, but is now undergoing massive regeneration.
