South Africa

 

Spent 10 days in South Africa filming and learning about apartheid-born, energy giant Sasol and the township of Zamdela, a polluted community in Sasolburg. Sasol is building the largest foreign owned plant in the US, directly on top of Mossville, an historic African American community in Louisiana.
