BACK TO MY ROOTS – GOAL R 20 000
“Back to my Roots” is a Documentary film about Phelix, a high born from Tanzania living in Cape Town, South Africa on a spiritual task from the ancestors.
He was forced to leave his home and come to a foreign country as part of his initiation preparation of becoming a ruler for his people. This is one of the task a Royal blood needs to undergo.
Phelix lives in a Shelter and works as a street performer in a tourist attraction “Company Garden”. Despite residing in a modernized Capital City he strongly upholds his customs and cultural traditions. Phelix is so in tuned with his roots that he still performs daily routines a Maasai men has to endure, on any given day you’ll see him wearing his tribal attire proudly.
After seven years living in South Africa he has successfully completed the tasks given to him by tribal leaders under the guidance of ancestors. The documentary will portray his life in Cape Town, how he lived among common people, all his experiences, trials and tribulations. The highlight of the film will be when Phelix finally goes home after seven years and we get to share this emotional experience with him. We’ll be documenting his anticipated arrival in Tanzania by his village people. This will consist of much celebration and joy all around.
Our goal is to raise R20 000. We intend to delegate the funds that we receive as follows:
- 50% will go towards hiring the best possible equipment within our budget to shoot our film.
- 20% will go towards covering catering costs and transportation fees for all our cast and crew
