The Journeymen (2016)
As the latest instalment for the Twenty Journey project, the Journeymen documentary follows three young South African photographers, from different walks of life, as they travel 24 000km throughout the country in a motorhome, to capture our promising, contentious and confusing present-day democracy. Wikus de Wet, Sipho Mpongo and Sean Metelerkamp, from contrasting cultural and racial backgrounds, find themselves learning about the country they call home and even more about themselves as young South Africans.
As part of the new wave of storytelling taking South African by storm, the film was recognised for its unconventional structure and style was invited to open the 37th Durban International Film Festival on Youth Day, 16 June 2016.
