There’s Still Good is a short film about the danger of a single story. The story is focalized through Will, a young black student from Cape Town who travels to the suburbs with his white boyfriend, K, to meet Joy, K’s mother. At dinner, Joy asks Will what his ‘African’ name is, and the characters are forced to interrogate their responses to an awkward situation which has arisen as a result of Joy’s access to only a single understanding of black South Africans. The film offers no resolution, and the boys leave the house the following afternoon, their relationship irrevocably altered.
