뷔텐칸트는 노숙하는 여인이 우연히 성공한 젊은 여성의 집의 열쇠를 발견하고 그 침입하는 사건을 그린 긴장감 넘치는 드라마다. 처음에 그 노숙 여인은 닥치는 대로 훔칠 려고 하지만 그녀는 잠시 생각하고 이 기회를 통해, 길 거리 생활을 청산하려 한다. 그녀의 경험은 사람이 환경에 따라 어떻게 변하는지, 케이프 타운의 분리 정책의 결과 어떤지를 현재까지 가져오는 지를 보여준다.
Buitenkant is a tense drama about a homeless woman who discovers an abandoned set of keys and breaks into the apartment that it belongs to - that of a successful young woman. Her first instinct is to steal whatever she can, but then she decides to take her time and make the most of this rare opportunity to be away from the chaos and filth of the streets. Her experience turns into a complex reflection on how humans are shaped by their circumstances, and how Cape Town's legacy of spatial segregation continues to play itself out today.
William Nicholson grew up in Johannesburg during South Africa’s complicated
transition into a non-racial democracy. He moved to Cape Town to study film and
literature at UCT and AFDA, after which he worked in film for several years before
co-founding Arcade Content, where he now works as a producer while continuing
to write and direct short films. His past shorts include “The Flea”, which was
produced through Focus Features’ Africa First programme and “Luhambo” which was
a winner at the 2010 Journeys Awards presided over by Wong Kar Wai.
