Better Bodies by Gabriella Achadinha.

Gabriella Achadinha and Michelle Madden teamed up to direct Better Bodies, a six-minute documentary focusing on Rui Solomons, a young bodybuilder from Lavender Hill. Living in what is infamously one of the Cape’s most dangerous communities as a result of gang violence and drug-related crime, Rui’s prospects looked the same as most young men his age – inevitable involvement in gangsterism. However, through the discovery of bodybuilding, Rui had a massive perspective-shift; both finding personal vision through the sport and inspiration to encourage others to direct their efforts away from crime.
