We remember differently, Jyoti Mistry
South Africa, 2004
A white South African middle-class mother and daughter are brought together by the mother’s illness. The two begin to exhume personal memory – discovering how they recall the past differently and how these nuances of shared experiences shape their perceptions of the present.
When I Grow Up I Want To Be A Black Man, Jyoti Mistry
South Africa/Austria, 2010
A double-screen work on violence and freedom. On one screen the ‘alphabet of violence’. The second screen's function is to evoke potential, possibility, aspirations and ambitions of a future where the value of the black man in society is revitalised through a lexicon of freedom; he runs towards his freedom.
