Climate Justice Activist, Film Maker and Journalist
Angelo C. Louw is an award-winning documentarian and social justice activist based in Johannesburg, South Africa. He uses his formal media training and journalism background to bring awareness to the various issues—environmental, social and economic—that affect marginalized communities the most.
As a journalist, he focuses on shifting perceptions of the climate crisis to be more inclusive of the people and communities it affects most. People of color often bear the brunt of society’s ills, and Louw’s work goes a long way toward educating audiences of all backgrounds about this fact. He has produced a short film highlighting the economic exclusion of South African fishermen, using storytelling to create a space for awareness and education. Louw's latest documentary, which delves into the impact of big oil on South African township communities, is to be released this year.
