JOHANNESBURG: Berea

Dir. Vincent Moloi
South Africa. 2013. 13min. Colour. English.

Long after his friends and family have moved on, Jewish pensioner Aaron Zukerman remains in his inner-city apartment, his world receding while the city envelopes his memories and happiness. His only focus is on weekly meetings with a kindly prostitute. When she is unexpectedly replaced, a chain of events are set in motion that inspire Aaron to revaluate his place in the world. Berea is a gentle, elegiac sonnet to the power of reinvention in the face of rapid urbanization.
