He did not want to shoot a film about gangsters, but a film with gangsters, says Teboho Edkins and travelled with a cameraman to Bonteheuwel, the poorest neighbourhood in Cape Town. In fact, what he experiences there has nothing to do with the common belief of gangster kitsch and popular “Scarface” idolatry. A blunt portrait of a meaningless and likewise hopeless world.
