Our tour of South Africa

admin | Friday, September 17th, 2010 | 2 Comments »

Six Oranges have completed a brief tour of South Africa accompanying the former head of the Special committee against Apartheid and UN Assistant Secretary General, E S Reddy to Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg. For decades, Mr Reddy was at the forefront of the anti-apartheid struggle organising UN and international anti-apartheid activity and solidarity with the liberation movements. Mr Reddy was honoured by the Gandhi Development Trust with the Mahatma Gandhi International Award for Reconciliation and Peace and also by the ANC Lenasia Branch which awarded him the Sol Plaatje Award. We filmed Mr Reddy receiving the awards and meeting with stalwarts of the South African liberation movement. A feature documentary is being planned.

    I am just writing to inquire if the coverage of ES Reddy will be posted online on the six oranges site? He is a wonderful individual and as a student of history he has helped me to better comprehend the anti-apartheid movement. When do you expect that a documentary may be available for the public?

    Thanks for your comment and your interest. We will be filming Mr Reddy in New York and we also want to film a lot more in South Africa. We anticipate the project will be ready summer 2011.
