WATCH: Ponte Tower


Residents of Jozi, as well as visitors, are mostly familiar with the 54-storey tall, circular building that, built in 1975, still dominates the city's iconic skyline. But plenty don't know much about it, and those that do have negative associations with the structure, let alone have visited it. In this interesting short documentary made by Philip Bloom in 2012, viewers are invited to a sneak peak inside the tower and get acquainted with a couple of the residents.

You can read about the filmmaker's experience shooting this documentary (with plenty of technical information about the cameras and equipment he used), here. View more of his work at philipbloom.net. Text Raphaella Frame-Tolmie
