Deep in South Africa is experimenting with new ways of telling a story and leveraging powerful new web technologies that facilitate that.

Protest Chants of the EFF is a short webdoc (web documentary), powered by Interlude’s Treehouse, on a protest held by the EFF last year May during the general elections. It’s  designed for both desktop/laptop and mobile.

This is a first foray into online documentary making with this app, so please let us know in the comments or contact us about any technical problems faced.
