Street Talk Film Series

Street Talk TV produces 15 minute documentaries which reflect human experience and feelings on the issues and challenges of our time and society which are broadcast on Community Television and DSTV.

In 2010, Street Talk presented a new format in which the documentaries featured organisations and individuals who have a positive impact on their communities.
