A documentary based on the time I am spending within the Hospice organisation in Grahamstown, in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Specialising in palliative care, their work is inspiring, hidden and humble.
Helluva fortunate to have grown up living in some of Southern Africa’s most beautiful places; from Cape Town, where I was born, and sandy Arniston Bay, to the shores of the great Zambezi, the Okavango, and Namibia, with a stopover in Jo’burg for some big city life, and boarding school in the hills of KwaZulu Natal. After a year of making beds and cleaning toilets in Scotland, scoffing one pound noodles on the streets of London, Swiss skiing, and Thai island-hopping, I set my sights on Rhodes University. Here I finished a Bachelor of Journalism & Media Studies while blissfully and barefootedly dwelling in the revelry of small town living, and learning to navigate the local Pick n Pay with my eyes closed. I have a deep love for this extraordinary country & continent, her people and her beautiful, fragile wilderness.
