Know your Durban

The documentary "Know your Durban " by DUrbanTV. The film was shot entirely during the lockdown, which was introduced in South Africa due to the spread of coronavirus infection.

The film will present to viewers a place in rural Inanda that is associated with the name of the great Indian thinker - Mahatma Gandhi, who lived in South Africa for more than 20 years (from 1893 to 1914). Here he developed his early philosophical ideas about the non-violent fight for independence, for which he was recognized as a fighter for world peace. Today, the prominent Indian politician Mahatma Gandhi ranks second in the list of outstanding South Africans, second only to Nelson Mandela, without being a native of South Africa.

The DurbanTV crew worked in compliance with all security measures. Many locations in the documentary look as if they were specifically closed for filming. Some of the locations selected for the documentary had already been closed for 3 months by the time of filming.

The film will tell viewers about the architectural attractions of Durban, the mix of styles and cultures in the urban landscape, folk crafts, art, and the history of the province of KwaZulu-Natal.
