Judge President Fikile Bam will launch the Huddleston Gateway Fund with a gala premiere of the South African documentary, Surfing Soweto, at Sci-Bono Discovery Centre in Johannesburg on Monday 13 June.
The Trevor Huddleston Memorial Centre and film production company Cinga Productions invite South Africans committed to youth development to attend the premiere screening of Surfing Soweto, a powerful commentary on marginalised young urban South Africans.
Selected for numerous festivals internationally, Surfing Soweto tells the story of a generation of alienated youth, born during the glowing promise after the demise of apartheid, and yet without the skills or wherewithal to reap the benefits of their newly-won freedom.
The Huddleston Gateway Fund is an initiative of the Huddleston Memorial Centre. Inspired by the late anti-apartheid activist, Father Trevor Huddleston, the centre was set up by fellow activists Fikile Bam and Sally Motlana in 2000. The centre aims to act as a catalyst for solutions to societal challenges through supporting people to learn, take action, evaluate and achieve their goals for life, while linking to, and serving, the wider community.
The screening will take place at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre, on Miriam Makeba between Jeppe and President Street in Newtown Johannesburg on Monday 13 June, 18h30 for 19h00.
