africa.music_video: Spoek Mathambo “Control” video (dir. by Pieter Hugo)

New video from Spoek Mathambo for the song “Control”. Snip from Dazed Digital article premiering the video:

In collaboration with one of South Africa’s most influential photographers Pieter Hugo, and cinematographer Michael Cleary, the new video explores township cults and teen gangs. Shot on location in a squatted train boarding house in Langa, Cape Town, the video features a cast mostly made up of local neighborhood kids who run their own dance troop, Happy Feet.

Very nice.

Pieter Hugo?: “Permanent Error”
