Synopsis

In Biko’s Children, young South African film maker Vuyisa Breeze Yoko searches for the legacy of Steve Biko. Questioning the employment of Biko as a cultural icon in contemporary pop culture, Yoko tackles issues of pop culture, politics, Black Conciousness and heritage. Two young South Africans who use Biko’s image in their work are forced by the film to make sense of his teachings and to engage in a meaningful conversation with their “father”. BIKO’S CHILDREN asks: What’s in an icon? How does Biko speak to us today? What would Biko do?
