Master of Disguise - Episode 4: "Westbury – Place of Dreams"

Master of Disguise - Episode 4: "Westbury – Place of Dreams"

Previously known as Western Native Township, Westbury is now one of Johannesburg's best-known colored communities. Although it is known for it's crime, corruption, drugs, alcohol and other problems, the people of the Westbury community believe that it's more than just a bad place. Westbury is also known as "The Place of Dreams".

In June 2014 five students from Finland came to Westbury and teamed up with youth members from the Westbury Youth Centre. The intention was to create a documentary about Westbury. In episode 4 of Master of Disguise I'm joined by one of the two students from Westbury, Emil Williams, who played a key role in making the documentary and who travelled in the beginning of March 2015 to Finland together with Maggie Magitla to present the documentary and to explore a different side of human kind.

Emil shares with me his experiences about Finland and about the influences that the documentary on Westbury has had to people of Finland.
