Asé Research Film Project Fundraising Trailer

Hello, visitor!


Thank you for visiting our Asé Research Film Project website! Please enjoy the fundraising film trailer for our documentary, 'Ubuntu Rising: 25 Years Since Apartheid'! Our film will explore inequality, race relations and progress 25 years since the first-democratically-elected government in South Africa.   We've spent many hours and poured in a ton of sweat equity into researching and preparing for this trip, but we still need some help making it to the finish line! Please consider making a donation to support the creation of the actual full film! Thank you for your support!

Follow us on our exploratory journey to understanding  wealth inequality in South Africa 25 years since the end of the apartheid system. This research film will document the journey of four Black, millennial, scholar-activists as they explore the history of apartheid, social movements, wealth inequality and avenues to economic prosperity for disenfranchised peoples in South Africa.
