    LEAVING MANDELA PARK- An award winning documentary

    Denman cinema, March 29th , 7:30 PM

    Tickets 11 $, buy online at



    Leaving Mandela Park is a story about the extraordinary drive of children to escape the harsh reality of township life through music and dance. Siseko sings opera escaping the abuse by his father, Cynthia plays the saxofoon while staying out of the hands of gangsters, and Guava sings kwaito on street corners, while Pinkie dances her way out of poverty. Their dreams are not isolated. They form a metaphor for the future of a country that will depend on this young generation.


    Education without Borders (EwB) aims to provide improved educational opportunities and facilities in disadvantaged regions of the world.

    Formed in 2002 in Vancouver and granted charitable status in 2003, EwB believes that the development of knowledge and skills gives individuals greater control over their lives and more possibilities and choices for their future.


    A registered BC non-profit society. Reel Causes organizes social film screening events in which film fans and the community at large enjoy an evening of high quality films for the benefit of a different cause every month. Reel Causes events are all 100% volunteer organized, and 100% of proceeds go to benefit the charity/cause of the month.
