Boikie | A Short Documentary by Sovereign Films

 

Filmed and produced by Sovereign FilmsBoikie is a short documentary following a day in the life of 28-year old Boikie Ephraim Semponye. This dancer from Mafikeng now lives on the streets and in the shelters of Pretoria’s CBD, but has found a way of barely making ends meet by using his talent. Shot on location in Pretoria, this documentary gives a meaningful insight into Boikie’s everyday struggles and joys from his perspective, one very few commuters consider when driving by. Having struck a sweet balance between beautiful cinematography and moving storytelling, this 6 minute long video incites respect rather than pity.
