Re/Distribute: Three Radical Economists on (Post)Apartheid

Two radical collectives working inside and outside of the academy to agitate with ideas and actions against ongoing histories of dispossession consider what redistribution means in the most unequal national context on earth. In a 50-minute short film, we look at how the promises of redistribution in the anti-apartheid liberation movement were foreclosed during the transition out of apartheid in South Africa. We interview three left economists who were active in the anti-apartheid movement but have lived through a transition in which the promise and idea of redistribution was abandoned as South Africa inserted a post-apartheid project into global processes of financialization and neoliberalization.
