Azibuye – The Occupation

This provocative documentary explores the intersection of art, activism, and social justice in Johannesburg. When artists/activists Masello and Evan take up residence in an abandoned mansion in an affluent part of Johannesburg, they proclaim their occupation to be an artistic and political act in defiance of inequalities in land ownership in South Africa. Is it illegal squatting, or political protest? Do these disenfranchised individuals have a valid claim to land that centuries ago was stolen?
