The  unique project combines fine-art portraits, short films, behind the scenes photography, written narrative and a feature length documentary. Two such South Africans are KZN Literary Tourism featured authoresses; Celebrated storyteller and founder of the Nozincwadi Mother of Books literacy campaign, Gcina Mhlope, and political activist, Pregs Goveneder.
