Tamar Garb spent twenty years in London "blocking out" the memory of the South Africa she grew up in, before gradually re-engaging with her home country in the post-Apartheid era.

This poignant film was filmed in and around the lush inner city basin of central Cape Town where she grew up. In it she introduces the show by reflecting on her own segregated childhood and young adulthood. She also explains how curating the V&A's new landmark exhibition of post-apartheid photography helped her  embrace her "South Africanness" once again and confront the challenges her native country faces "in full colour"
