Festival Politicos [ep. 1] – Afropunk Fest Johannesburg 2017

What one wears to a festival of any kind is not by accident. Each festival was born of a unique perspective, cause or belief. We at REconnecteD Productions teamed up with Misa Narrates to explore the conscious and subconscious dress codes of music, food, art and other festivals across the African continent.

First up? AFROPUNK!! For over a decade, Afropunk Fest has celebrated people on the fringe of society with African lineage. For the first time, the festival was hosted in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Every festival goer knows of the ethos of Afropunk. For fashion focused attendees, marrying looks to politics is natural and necessary.

Created, Produced and Filmed By:  Tshego “Red” Mosiane of REconnecteD in collaboration with Misa Makwakwa Masokameng of Misa Narrates

Interviews with Samora EsajasDidintle NtshudisaneNgudjal KwameZana “Ndebele Superhero” MasombukaBuck Whaley & Qiniso van Damme
