The Mahoyo Project

The Mahoyo Project is a documentary about the Swedish creative trio Mahoyo and their journey to Johannesburg, South Africa. In the growing cultural scene in Johannesburg, Mahoyo collaborates with local artists who all have counterparts in the creative scene in Stockholm where the collaboration continues. In both places we see a budding movement where norms and stereotypes are challenged.
This story aims to break stereotypes of gender, race and location.
