Formerly of Symphony Way, a group of 100 Cape Town families were evicted and relocated to the infamous "Blikkiesdorp" or "Tin Town." Blikkiesdorp is a temporary relocation area for families on the waiting list for government housing. It’s come to represent a dumping ground for families who live in conditions that can be compared to a concentration camp.
This documentary tells the story of their struggle for housing, while a seemingly uncaring state bungles its way through an ill-conceived housing programme.
“Tin Town” was made by Nora Connor, Clementine Wallace and Colton Margus. It was produced by Barefoot Workshops, Inc.
