The Creators is an ambitious undertaking -- shot, edited and directed by South Africans with the assistance of a bright young woman named Laura Gamse, who hails from Arlington, VA. The recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship, she moved to South Africa to make a documentary about one phenomenal artist. "As I spent more time in the country," she recalls, "I realized that the story of just one person could not capture the diversity of -- and tensions within -- South African society. The wealth gap shocked me, not that I hadn't seen polarized wealth in the US, but in South Africa it is more extreme, and the suffering of its people more viscerally apparent. I wanted audiences to be able to feel the different textures of life in South Africa, as expressed through its artists' creations."
The film is oddly uplifting, given the indelible images of slums, violence and poverty. Despite the history of oppression that defined the nation for so long, the artists featured in this film are determined to make art in the form of music or dance or opera or graffiti. In between images of the artists, The Creators shows snippets of history lessons, including archival footage of an officious elected official intoning that apartheid "is a policy of good neighborliness" as images of police actions and brutality fill the screen.
