TAXI Art Films: a new initiative from David Krut Publishing

2nd September 2008 | Other items by


TAXI Art Films is an extension of TAXI Art Books, the first major series by a South African publisher on contemporary South African artists.

South Africa’s wonderfully diverse cultural heritage contributes to inspired artmaking and other creative activities, and TAXI Art Films showcases some of this local art and design talent. The films continue the dedication of David Krut Publishing to promoting and celebrating South African art, culture, design and architecture both locally and abroad.

As an extension of the TAXI metaphor, film is an appropriate medium with which to move beyond print. Unlike the TAXI Art Books series, the content and format of which were quite uniform across the series, the films are not bound in this way by particular content restraints. Content decisions are based on the integrity of the material and its value in terms of exposing South African creativity and culture.

The first films of the TAXI Art Films series are:

TAF001 – Touring the Constitutional Court of South Africa with Justice Albie Sachs

TAF002 – Spier Contemporary 2007, featuring Andrew Putter, Andrzej Nowicki, Peter van Heerden and Mduduzi Nyembe.

TAF003 – Spier Contemporary 2007, featuring Peter van Heerden and Leila Anderson, Brett Bailey, Ruth Levin, Mwenya Kabwe, Chuma Sopotela and Kemang WaLehulere.

TAF004 – Design Initiatives, featuring Elizabeth Janse van Vuuren and Weyers Marais

Forthcoming TAXI titles:
TAF005 – Friedrich Danielis in conversation with David Krut
TAF006 – Pancho Guedes: An Alternative Modernist

    To Whom It May Concern,

    My husband and I made a documentary called “Reconciliation: Mandela’s Miracle,” which was filmed in South Africa in March 2009. One of our main subjects was Justice Albie Sachs, who gave us a show-stopping interview. Afterwards, he gave us the voluminous book “Light on a Hill, Art and Justice,” which included the DVD of “Touring The Constitutional Court of South Africa” by Lomin Saayman and Lloyd Ross. Justice Sachs generously told us that if we needed any more footage we could use something from the DVD. In the end, we used 15 seconds, of which 4 sec. is Albie giving a tour, and 11 sec. is of the door opening onto the “Tree of Life” logo.

    In the end credits of our film we credited it as “Touring The Constitutional Court of South Africa” by Lomin Saayman and Lloyd Ross” courtesy of Justice Albie Sachs. We also credited the artist Carolyn Parton, who created the Logo, in our end credits.

    At the moment the film is a self-financed labor of love as of yet undistributed. We just became aware of your company Taxi Art Films, and would therefore like to inform you of these short clips as offered by Justice Sachs.

    As we are ready to go to a festival and have a potential offer for showing on a small cable station we wish to make sure we have cleared all our rights properly.

    Sincerely,

    Carole Wilson
