Set in a busy Dar es Salaam street, a shoeshine boy offers us a conscious and subconscious perspective of the space and people of his city ranging from the local politicians to university students as well as the neighbourhood tea maker. This sensitive and compelling film is equally successful as social commentary and as an artistic depiction of the life, aspirations and perspectives of a working child.

Dir. Amil Shivji.
With Godfrey Augustino.

Tanzania. 2013. 24min. Colour.
