Buskaid Short documentary , 2005, 50 min.

In the township of Diepkloof Soweto there is a music school where the ''Buskaid Soweto String Project'' flourishes. In June 2004, four music teachers from the SKVR in Rotterdam went to Diepsloot, Soweto. They played the violin with the children, the ensembles and the teachers and observed the students, pupils, and teachers inspirational work and how they deal with the competition of life: how they cope to fit the music practice in their everyday life and deal to keep education and music making at a home stand upright. In addition to a report of this meeting, the film goes back in Rotterdam when the four teachers from the SKVR get back home, and struggle with their new impulses.
