Why Are We So Angry?
Premiere date:

Why are we so angry

A six-part documentary series that explores the psyche of South Africans.

Prior to the 1994 elections there was a lot of political violence, although it decreased dramatically post ’94. Unfortunately the political violence has been replaced by other forms of violence including, xenophobic and racial attacks, domestic and other violent crimes, violent strikes and service delivery protests etc.

This may be an indication that there is a deep underlying problem ... anger. As a society, we seem to be engulfed by anger The series asks: why are we so angry? Does this level of anger benefit us as a society? What do we need to do to purge ourselves from this toxic emotion?

The series looks beyond the fairytale transformation to analyse the current national psyche of South Africans. It explores diverse voices ranging from expert advice, social commentators to popular opinion with the aim of getting to the bottom of our anger, in order to allow us to move forward as a nation in building our country and a united national identity.
