The Remani Love Documentary – SA Tour in partnership with British Council Connect ZA has come to an end, and with Remani’s SA tour done and dusted here’s a look back on what Remani Love got up to during her stay in South Africa where she started out in Johannesburg; the city of lights and went all the way to Cape Town; the mother city – meeting like-minded people, having dinner dates with creatives, engaging in #conversationsonfilm and let’s not forget the master class she gave at Epozini hosted by Umuzi photo club.
We give you a glimpse of the tour through podcasts, imagery and motion picture from the day the tour kicked off; with Remani arriving in South Africa on the 26th October 2016. She landed in the city of lights and was based in Maboneng for her stay in Johannesburg.
After a good night’s rest we headed to the Redbull Amaphiko Film Festival where Remani Love participated in a couch session discussing funding and the development process of the film industry with Vincent Moloi who is a creative director at Puo Pha Productions and Karabo Lediga who is a content producer, scriptwriter and director at Diprente films . Her film was screened on Saturday at the festival. It received positive feedback followed by a Q&A session by the audience.
As the festival came to an end, a new week dawned on us which set itself up for Remani Love to record her South African version of #LOVEDOC. She spoke to young men, older men, young women as well as older women, each telling her about their self-love journey’s.
Joined by fellow creatives in various industries; she headed to Melville for a candle lit dinner at the Ant Cafe, of various Italian dishes, wine and conversations on self-love, self-worth, growth, creativity and creative industries, and the history of our beautiful country which filled the warm evening with laughter, debates and a whole lot of educational topics.
We wrapped up the interview and headed to Umuzi photo club for Epozini master class where Remani was given the platform to discuss her film, what she does, her self-love journey, and also hear about the struggles and victories creatives in Johannesburg went through on the pursuit of self-love.
Followed by Dinner at the Primi world – V&A Waterfront with Cape Town Creatives.
And with that it was a wrap! After an intense tour filled with so much insights, we look forward to seeing the SA #LOVEDOC!
