Scenes From a Dry City

Scenes From a Dry City

13' 2018
dir.: Simon Wood, François Verster

What does life look like in a big city when the water runs out?

Like in Cape Town, South Africa, where the police go after poor people whose only source of income are illegal car washes, and the elderly who consume the last drops of the precious liquid to water their gardens. And yet there are luxury hotels operating without a hitch right next door whose giant golf courses don’t seem to be lacking for water.
