The operation « Gcin’amanzi » (Zulu for «water conservation») in Soweto is one of the country’s most ambitious water related projects. In post-apartheid South Africa the project was essential.
Since the fall of the segregationist regime the country has been forging its new identity, navigating between economic imperatives and the vast social inequalities that threaten to undermine the new South African society. Public services such as water, electricity, housing and transport are prime concerns.
This documentary tells the story of the water project using the same evaluative criteria used by the community of donors. The film is an evaluative enquiry presenting the project’s key events and results and giving the viewer the opportunity to reach his or her own conclusions.
The aim of such an evaluation is to provide genuine communication, to strengthen corporate culture and to fuel pedagogical sessions.
