ISOLATED-The Short Film
About This Project
In a country with decades of freedom, one’s sexual orientation could still mean the difference between being culturally/ religiously or widely accepted and brutally facing what’s been dubbed “correctional rape”, with some cases ending with mutilated bodies found dumped in bushes, despite the victims being harmless to anybody or to the country, its policies and laws

Robby Sibuyi is an up coming creative originally from a very small village in Mpumalanga. Im a writer at heart, from poetry to music to film scrips, im no stranger to story telling.
I love media in general but cinema captivates me, it combines all what made me fall in love with arts. In addition to music, im an up coming filmmaker, and i believe South Africa has a gap and a market for short films in this digital age.
