About This Episode


Freedom in South Africa after 1994 means the freedom for Tumelo and Dominique to express themselves in ways that genuinely baffle their parents. For these two female, hip-hop disc jockeys from rather conservative backgrounds, 1994 signalled the beginning of a journey to personal freedom.

On the other hand, Tumelo’s endearingly nostalgic father sees this as the point at which the youth became aware of their rights, causing society’s values to crumble. In Mix, the tension between attaining personal freedom and satisfying family obligations is played out as an almost total communication breakdown between parents and daughter, between young and old, and between siblings.
