 Filming sculptor Maxwell Sibisi at home in Mamelodi, near Pretoria. Maxwell picks up interesting rubbish and wood he finds while walking near his home, to create  items  out of them, either to sell or to give to others as gifts. Maxwell was selected to assist in the interior decoration of the Mamelodi West Community Centre for the Amaphiko Red Bull workshop for social entrepreneurs in 2017.  He made tables and chairs for the delegates. We made a feature for CNN's Inside Africa about this flowering of this creativity  in one of South Africa's most established townships. Maxwell, like the other local artists, was an inspiration. He turns trash into treasure.
