Ericaville Farming Trust

In this participatory video project a film is made by 11 members of the Ericaville Farming Trust. A complicated process led to the participants going out into their community to enable a group of youth, elders and women to come together to tell their stories through a participatory video process, and community screening. The video tells the story of their journey together as a community. The past displacement from the West Coast and their resettlement along the coast of the Southern Cape, South Africa, their longing to own land and to farm became a reality after a wait of 30 years.

The Hub in South Africa (called Insight eThekweni) is located within the Inanda township in Durban, KwaZulu Natal. We are not filmmakers doing social media, but developmental workers seeking to make a difference in the lives of the marginalised. We are community activists seeking a new world that will be inheritable to our children – advocating for social and environmental justice.
