All the latest journalism from the Rhodes TV3 class

Grahamstown Ink

Posted by Paddy On November - 9 - 2009

A short documentary by Grethe Koen and Roza Carvalho

Talk about commitment to journalism! Roza went as far as getting a tattoo when we shot this documentary. It attempts to challenge the stereotypes surrounding “inked” people by literally confronting them with the stereotype of “Baxter,” a cardboard cut-out of a heavily tattooed guy.  We also document the process of getting tattooed as we go along to Silver Dragon Tattoos and watch Gary put on Roza’s tat.

Raphael HIV testing and support CentreThe Raphael Centre located in Grahamstown, South Africa is a HIV/AIDS testing and support centre. Lately, though, this haven for people infected or affected by the virus has been rought by troubles. The future of the centre is uncertain as it needs sponsors to ensure it’s survival. Meanwhile other issues, like an objecting neighbour are also posing problems for the centre which helps over 1 000 people every month.
