A short-film from South Africa went viral this week after being selected as a Vimeo Staff Pick.

The film, titled Buitenkant, is the project of Cape Town’s William Nicholson and details a day in the life of a homeless woman who finds herself alone, inside the private flat of a complete stranger.

Currently sitting at 123k views, the film details the complexities of segregated living in Cape Town, as a result of apartheid spatial planning. Buitenkant is also the winner of the Jury Award at Shnit Worldwide Film Festival 2016.
