Cape Flats gang violence to hit small screens

1 December 2017


Cape Town - Scared mothers, terrified children, gunfire, and gang hits that cost as little as R1 000. This is the harsh reality of everyday life in Hanover Park.

Now, a new short film sheds light on how this Cape Flats community lives with gang violence and death.

The film, Gatvol, was created by Street Talk and features seven Hanover Park moms who shared their pain of losing loved ones to the relentless gang violence.

The movie was directed by award-winning television reporter, producer and director, Jo Menell, and was shot just over a month ago in partnership with the Hanover Park Women’s Development Forum and Hope Community Development Project. Read the full article on the Independent Online here.
