A story of a Zimbabwean abstract painter, Rashid's 'stream of consciousness' as he talks about life, war, politics, spirituality, and their intersection with art.
A Taxi into Cape Town
What happens when you are not white enough to be white or black enough to be black?
A taxi driver gives an alternative tour into the townships of Cape Town where he introduces me to some interesting people. An ex-convict now on parole who has spent nearly 25 years behind bars. His cases involve murder and armed robbery. A former gang member and drug dealer. Lastly a former freedom fighter who was in the trenches to fight the Apartheid regime. The taxi drive provides a running commentary that threads through "A Taxi into Cape Town".
