Report by Zizipho Majavu, Athini Majali & Nontobeko Gumede
A young man returns to the basement of his childhood home. He whiles away the hours, drinking and waiting for someone to come looking for him. The basement is empty except for an old couch, two crates filled with bottles of alcohol, and paper airplanes strewn about the room. It is the graveyard that holds the family’s secrets in its peeling walls and grimy floor – the secrets and ghosts that have sunk into the foundations of the house. From three-time Standard Bank Ovation Award-winners, Rust Co-Operative.
