We chatted to Benjy Francis, a true warrior and champion, about how he uses the silver screen as a tool for social transformation… Benjy told us of a group of young Alexandra residents who photographed images of environmental degradation, neglect and unhygienic living conditions in the township on World Environment Day last year, “The images show quite clearly how this impacts on the residents dignity and human rights,” he said. “The exhibit served as a "third eye" showing us what we take for granted in our lives.”
"I believe in the power of human beings to change the world"
- Benjy Francis on the iStart2 Show
Benjy "starts2" by committing to motivate young artists to enter the iStart2 Challenge. Great support from a man who uses the Arts as a catalyst to develop youth in areas where sadly, everyone else has given up.
