Our documentary explores the perceptions people have and the stereotypes they naturally create when thinking about Indian people.  We investigate how true these stereotypes are at Rhodes University and reveal that there are in fact many exceptions to these racial and social structures we tend to create.  Sit back and enjoy this fast-paced documentary as it gives you an insight as to the ‘Indian Angle’.

A Public Service Announcement in conjunction with the Industry Association for Responsible Alcohol Use (ARA).  We explored the dangers of alcohol abuse from a students pespective and how everything can go so wrong, so quickly.  The use and enjoyment of alcohol is not just fun and games.  A culture of responsibility needs to be re-created amongst our generation.  Our PSA was entered into the Mnet Vuka Awards this year where we placed in the top 30 for the students category.
