THE GREAT GATSBY: REDEMPTION – SHORT FILM

WINNER: SHNIT Realtime Competition 2015.

A Gatsby is a South African sandwich very similar in content and method of preparation to a hoagie in the United States. It has been described as a “filling, budget meal”, a standard menu item in Cape Town corner stores, and as a significant part of the heritage and a cultural symbol of Cape Flats, where it originated from.

MAD LITTLE BADGER in association with the SHNIT FOUNDATION presents
