The Institutionalization of a Zulu Warrior.

A look into Wolhuters Men’s Hostel also known as Jeppestown Mens Hostel in Johannesburg, South Africa where men and women with their children come for a better opportunity but instead are entrapped in a fort like prison that prohibits them from growth. Jeppe’s hostel has been surrounded by media outbursts due to xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals, where the men are viewed as criminals, though the reality is they come in search of wealth only to be confronted by inhumane living conditions and post-apartheid challenges.
This documentary seeks to be their mouthpiece to question why the hostel has been neglected since ’96 and interrogate why most of the buildings in Ward 61 have no proof of documentation or accountability.
