Special Screenings of: The Foxy Five

August 18th is a special date for The Foxy Five… it marks the start of our Season 1 Screening Week in JHB at The Bioscope! After a successful premiere on July 12th, we were asked to come back for more.


If you haven’t heard about us or seen any of our episodes, now is your chance! The Foxy Five is a web-series that deals with issues of intersectional feminism and follows the lives of five womxn who are finding themselves in the young democracy that is Cape Town.


Each womxn represents a different struggle and ideal within feminism. Despite their ideological differences and the clashes they often cause, the Five are a tight-nit sisterhood that always manages to band together in overcoming The Man. And as you watch each episode you get insight into each character’s life and personal struggles.


The creator, writer and director - Jabu Nadia Newman - was particularly inspired during the #FeesMustFall movement to create this fictional web-series on the the new concepts and ideas she had recently learned. For Jabu, however, The Foxy Five is more than just a series on Youtube - it’s a mentality. The all female crew and cast hope to inspire other females and people of colour that the moment in making change is now. Feminism needs to delve deep into the issues that black womxn face everyday, something the series tries to deal with in each episode.
