BEAUTIFUL IN BEAUFORT WES
Human Interest / Arts
South African poet and singer Gert Vlok Nel lives in Beaufort West, a village in Big Karoo, an empty stretch of land between Cape Town and Johannesburg.The village forms the inspiration for Gert Vlok Nel’s work.
Beaufort West has obtained an almost mythical status: critics refer to it as the “real” South Africa, far away from the big Westernized cities.
Accompanied by his poems and songs we travel through the village and meet Gert, his father, Beaufort West and its inhabitants.
