Receive Me Hillbrow is a short enthographic documentary of Hillbrow, a transitional degenerated residential area in the Johannesburg CBD South Africa.
This film was compiled by Guy Ailion and Dana Fayman as a visual narrative into the subject of the role of the Church vs the Street as a reception for immagrants arriving in Hillbrow as part 1 of their Architectural B.A.S Honors degree at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
The project attempts to identify the needs and social circumstances of new immagrants in the port-like suburb of Hillbrow, and identifies the possibilities of spirituality being a means to present an alternative presence on the streets to counter the overwealming lure into illegal trades by the vast drug-lord community in Hillbrow. Hillbrow was a vibrant cosmopolitan part of the city untill the late 1970's from which the ubran fabric began to dissmantle under badly managed buildings and lack of municipal foresight. Today Hillbrow is notoriously known as the most dangerous place in Johanneburg.
