KULTURE TALK Weaam Williams   Filmmaker and producer -  District Six Rising from the Dust (a doccie)

KULTURE TALK

Weaam Williams  
Filmmaker and producer -  District Six Rising from the Dust (a doccie)

The film was produced over a period of six years from January 2013 to August 2019, and details her experience of intergenerational trauma, as she relearns a historical ancestral story from a different perspective.

(2021) - District Six Rising from the Dust, won Best Original Story at the Florence Film Awards in Italy, a day before the 55th year commemoration of forced removals and the area declared a whites-only group area.

With her mother and ancestors always speaking fondly of memories in District Six, Williams shared that none of this included the forced removals. She moved into District Six, a home restituted to her late grandfather, and so started the conversation with her mother and elders.

The film details the expropriation of the family’s home under the Group Areas Act, and the destruction of her grandfather’s tailor shop, Hartley Tailors.

“After I moved out at the end of 2018, it took a few months for me to process why I had to leave. And shot the conclusion to the film in August 2019, I decided towards the end of last year to start submitting the film to festivals again, and it has been very well received, with quite a few official selections already, two finalist positions, an honorary mention and two awards. We had won an award previously for this film at the Scandinavian International Film Festival.”
Williams’ recently released Two Hues, her first fiction short film, was awarded Best Short Film at the Beyond the International Curve Film Festival, in Paris, and is now being developed into a feature film.

Weaam Williams, is a Muslim woman screen-writer, director and poet. She has found her voice as a woman and activist using cinema. She is a member of the Film Fatales and owner of Tribal Alchemy Productions, an independent production company which specialises in video and photographic productions.
