Spina Daai Deng

SPINA DAAI DENG is a 13 minute documentary film that uncovers the story of Vaaijie Kunene, an unexpected hero and rising star in the spinning ranks. The film speaks on the societal norms and expectations within the culture verses those of society as a whole and the personal development of the key players that form part of the spinning culture. SPINA DAAI DENG aims to create understanding and representation of the spinning culture in Johannesburg, it's history, how it has grown and the future it holds for those who are active participants within its framework.
