Storyline

Born into separate areas of the formerly-segregated country, The Creators recraft history in their own artistic languages. Weaving through the lives of Faith47 (street art), Warongx (afro-blues), Emile (hip-hop), Sweat.X (performance art), Blaq Pearl (spoken word) and Mthetho (opera), the film culminates in an intertwined multi-plot. As we grow closer to the individuals we notice stark differences between their perspectives, exposing an intimate, refreshing, and deeply revealing portrait of those remolding the legacy of apartheid.

Terrific film on artists and artistic process
20 September 2015 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Not knowing much about South Africa, except Paul Theroux's recent book on his march through western Africa and his final destination Johannesburg, and the real problems that remain post apartheid, as well as Looking for Sugarman, I was hungry for more information and feel for the country and this film fills a real gap. There is an intense artistic voice in South Africa and its a huge mix of discordant, wild expression, and The Creators gives you an important behind the scenes and REAL look. My favourite was the rap/electro/alternative black and white duo Sweat.X and they could merit a movie on themselves alone, really great voices and powerful elements for change. Two thumbs up.
