The Mahoyo Project: South Africa

We follow the Swedish, creative trio Mahoyo on their norm-breaking journey. They have multicultural backgrounds. Moreover, they  have all experienced social injustices regarding race, gender, sexual orientation and background. Mahoyo travels to South Africa to demonstrate that creativity is found in unexpected places. In the growing cultural scene in Johannesburg, Mahoyo collaborates with local artists who all have counterparts in the creative scene in Stockholm where the collaboration continues. In both places we see a budding movement where norms and stereotypes are challenged.

Don’t miss out Mahoyo live on Tempo’s closing party

(Screened together with Let’s Dance, Beyond the Divide and Beneath the Blazing Sun in New Doc Block 3)
