Synopsis:
In his debut documentary, "Afrikaaps," Dylan Valley explores the untold Creole history of Afrikaans, using what he knows best: hip-hop, humor, and personal perspective. The film follows a group of artists creating the stage production, "Afrikaaps," as they trace the true roots of Afrikaans to slaves in the Cape. It features musical greats Jitsvinger, Kyle Shepard, Emile (black noise), Moenier Adamas, Shane Cooper, Blaq Pearl, the powerhouse b-boy, Bliksemstraal, and the poetic genius of Jethro Louw. The film reclaims and liberates Afrikaans from its reputation as the language of the oppressor, taking it back to the people who own it.
