Focus Afrique du Sud

In an observation in highly ironic black and white, as accurate as if it were cut by laser, Simon Gush reflects on the work ethic and influence of Calvin in Geneva and in South Africa. The traces of Calvinism in South African history are made to resonate by images and texts, like haikus in the form of paintings. A surprising and intelligent contemporary parable.
