Zimbabwean artist Dan Halter addresses the tense social and political relations between his native country and South Africa in Beitbridge Moonwalk.
Inspired by the true story of a group of Zimbabwean immigrants who were able to elude the border police by walking backwards across the bridge that divides the two countries, Halter's performance video features King of Pop Michael Jackson's famous move in the most unlikely settings. (3 mins., video)
