The Swenkas
SBS  |  November 27, 2007

Imagine a group of men from tough backgrounds who try to make their living as labourers, miners, and security guards in post apartheid South Africa. Now imagine this same group of men donning their Pierre Cardin suits and engaging in underground fashion shows every Saturday night for prizes, and more importantly - self-respect. Danish filmmaker Jeppe Ronde's The Swenkas takes its title from the name by which these men are known.
