“Introducing outsiders to a creative scene seemingly far more vibrant than most of us realized, Petter Ringbom’s Shield and Spear finds post-Apartheid South Africa brimming with art, music and activism despite widespread disappointment with those leading its government.” More»

An artist paints a caricature of South African president Jacob Zuma that provokes a lawsuit, death threats and a massive street protest. Around this incident, Shield and Spear explores a constellation of stories about identity, art, race, and freedom of expression in South Africa, twenty years into democracy.
Shield and Spear is a feature documentary directed by Petter Ringbom, executive produced by Marquise Stillwell for Openbox and Christophe Charlier for LeCastle, and produced by Alysa Nahmias.
