FROM THIS EPISODE

poster.jpgDirector Ralph Ziman’s career has taken him from documentary (Hearts and Minds) to music videos (Faith No More) to feature film (The Zookeeper). His South African film noir,  Gangster's Paradise: Jerusalema, is the brave grim world his hero wants to create.

Ziman talks about filming guerilla-style in the streets of Johannesburg, casting his film, music as part of the South African fabric of life, being sold a pirated copy of his own film in Johannesburg, reaction to Jerusalema from political and religious groups, mythology and folklore in the film, incorporating the post-Apartheid ongoing struggle, being the first film of the Zuma generation.
