We are crowdfunding for our latest story, which has an ending like a Cinderella fairy tale.
Our project is about the gang-ridden area Manenberg, in Cape Town, South Africa. Schools are regularly forced to close down because it is too dangerous to walk to school. Most people in Manenberg never finish high school because they end up in crime. The few youngsters that do finish have one thing in mind: their senior prom. The families of the teenagers save up the whole year to be able to rent a fancy car and to buy ball gowns and tuxedos. They feel a sparkle of hope to escape their bleak reality, even if it is just for One Carefree Night.
This is a story of hope when all odds are against you.
We work as freelancers and have invested a lot in this project over the past few years because the stories of these teenagers have gripped us. We have great video and photos and need help to transform our rough material into a webdoc. With your help we can edit this story and create an online platform with an interactive long read. We work together under the name FROG IN A TENT. For our short documentary Afrikaner Blood, we won the World Press Photo Multimedia Award.
