Motion City Films recently traveled to KwaZulu Natal to shoot the first part of the Amarok Social Test Drive.  The first Social Test Drive started in Richard’s Bay, travelling across rural KZN to deliver 6000 textbooks to Zwanani Combined Primary  in Mwane, a school desperately in need of resources. We are incredibly proud to be part of this initiative.
