Eric's vision is
for the viewer to absorb
and feel the image
and not be distracted by
ODETTE VAN RENSBURG
Odette is originally Zimbabwean.
She is a singer/songwriter
and Belly dancer.
Through deep conversations
she reveals secrets
that lose shame
when given a voice.
Since 2013 Eric and Odette @ Dogs on the Run
have been documenting social behaviour throughout Southern Africa.
As independent film makers, we have the freedom to document
agenda or restrictions.
We make documentaries that document what is,
capturing issues steeped in stigma and shame.
By unveiling the masks worn as armour,
we shine a light on behaviour society chooses to ignore.
"I find your filming techniques
and the way you managed to have the people you were interviewing
open up the way they did
(and forget that the camera was there),
a huge testament to you as
and as a person"
