Many first witnessed the iniquities of Apartheid through the lens of South Africa’s late great photographer, David Goldblatt. Here, the lens is turned on Goldblatt himself in the final years of his life and work. At 86, after 70 years of  image-making, Goldblatt’s prolific protest-in-pictures against ongoing inequality and social injustice in South Africa is as determined and relentless as ever.

Drawing on Goldblatt’s rich catalogue – and with interviews from Nadine Gordimer, Zanele Muholi, and William Kentridge – this is a meditation on identity, place, and longing, set within the ever-shifting landscape of South Africa

Director: Daniel Zimbler

Producers: Liza Essers, Josh Ginsburg
