American exchange student Brendan Coli spent four months in South Africa in late 2014, during which he filmed video every day. He has compressed his footage into a remarkable 11-minute 30-second video called “The Life Project”, which reveals the remarkable character of the country through an outsider’s eyes.

Watch Coli’s take on Cape Town, the West Coast, Durban, the Drakensberg and more.
