The Art of Fallism

The thought-provoking Art of Fallism interweaves archival footage of the student protests that swept South Africa in 2016 with the lived experience of four activists whose stories put a human face on the scenes of student rage and violence.  Beginning with the movement to decolonise education – #RhodesMustFall – The Art of Fallism shows students rallying to effect change across a spectrum of issues, including #FeesMustFall and gender politics. By 2019 some of their aims, such as making tertiary education more inclusive and affordable, had been achieved. As one student proclaims, “Today we are fighting for the same thing as our parents … it must end with us.”
