"This book will forever alter the way you see the people who live on the margins in Johannesburg"– Gayle Edmunds reviews瓦亚

瓦亚


Vaya the Film
以《无家可归者》作家大卫·马约卡的四个年轻人的生活为基础,Anthony Mafela,Madoda Ntuli和Tshabalira Lebakeng,并植根于他们来到约翰内斯堡的经历。瓦雅的书为您带来了激励获奖影片的人物和故事。

Through personal stories that are intimate and hard hitting,瓦亚会让你既惊讶又震惊。It offers a rare lens into life in Johannesburg and amplifies the voices of people who live on the city's margins.这本书将引发关于这座城市对数百万带着勇气和人性在街道上穿行的普通人意味着什么的对话和辩论。

由无家可归作家项目开发,and containing accessible history,辩论和互动活动,以下是一些故事和人物,它们激发了这部获奖影片的灵感。

瓦亚会让人震惊和鼓舞。

The Homeless Writer's Project was started in 2010 by filmmaker Robbie Thorpe and joined soon after by Harriet Perlman.它通过创造机会让故事发展成电影和出版媒体,为无声者发出声音。The group meets once a week to share stories and ideas and create a safe place for discussion.电影剧本瓦亚began in story workshops,where participants shared and told stories over a period of six years.这些生活经历被记录下来并被制作成电影剧本。

盖尔·埃德蒙兹最近为城市出版社评论了这本非凡的书;请阅读以下摘录:

Home.A place to call home.This book will forever alter the way you see the people who live on the margins in Johannesburg,以及你对家的概念。

这本书,and the movie of the same name it complements,is the product of an initiative started in 2009,无家可归作家项目。

这个节目为人们提供了一个在城市街道上生活和生存的空间。Those stories were workshopped into the film,电影的制作带来了这本书。

大卫•Majoka Vaya的合作者——四个马多达·恩图利,Anthony Mafela and Tshabalira Lebakeng – share their experiences of coming to the city in search of those fabled jobs and opportunities.What each of them find is an existence they didn't expect.每个人都有不同的无家可归的故事,but each triumphs over his circumstances in unexpected and varied ways.

The stories of the four main protagonists are interspersed with essays by experts,比如彼得·迪利厄斯和莎拉·查尔顿,that offer context for why the city is the way it is,种族主义法律如何证明不平衡的基础设施发展是合理的,仍然统治着社会边缘的许多人体验城市的方式。

在她的文章中,了解无家可归,查尔顿解释了无家可归的细微差别,表现出对那些认为“睡得不好”的人的无知有某种嗜好或性格缺陷。

“我试图找到一种方法来写一本书,讲述来自世界各地不同背景的女性的故事。”合著者杰夫·布莱克威尔讨论200 Women在经典FM上

200名女性将改变你看待世界的方式,来自不同背景的200名女性被问同样的五个问题。Their answers are inspiring human stories of success and courage,love and pain,redemption and generosity.

来自知名活动人士,艺术家,以及那些生活也同样与众不同的日常女性的创新者,每个女人都会分享她对“你真正关心的是什么”等问题的独特回答。“如果可以的话,你会改变世界吗?”

采访对象包括美国最高法院法官鲁思·巴德·金斯堡,演员兼人权活动家阿尔弗雷德·伍德德,and Nobel laureate Jodi Williams,along with those who are making a difference behind the scenes around the world,比如马里恩·赖特·埃德尔曼,head of the Children's Defense Fund.

每次面试都有一张照片,resulting in a volume that is compelling in word and image – and global in its scope and resonance.This landmark book is published to coincide with an immersive travelling exhibition and an interactive website,building on this remarkable,不断发展的项目。With responses ranging from uplifting to heartbreaking,these women offer gifts of empowerment and strength inviting us to bring positive change at a time when so many are fighting for basic freedom and equality.

Local interviewees include Graça Machel,卡斯特·塞门亚,Zelda la Grange,图图·范富特先生,胡比姆博亚,萨姆文特尔,Joanne Fedler,英格丽德·勒鲁克斯,Gillian Slovo和Zoleka Mandela,among others.

A minimum of 10% of the project's revenue will be distributed to organisations devoted to protecting and advancing the rights of women.Each interviewee can nominate an organisation (or themselves if they are in financial need) to receive their portion of the charitable pool or they can select the principal charitable partner,格雷·马谢尔信托公司。
