The memory of District Six is as iconic to Cape Town as Table Mountain.
It is remembered as a cosmopolitan neighbourhood, and a hub of art, music and culture. It is the neighbourhood right next to Cape Town’s cbd.
In 1960 District Six was declared a whites only area. This declaration was formalised with the Apartheid Group Areas Act of 1966 advocating the “Divide and Rule” ideology.
It is estimated that approximately 60 000 to 80 000 people were forcibly removed from District Six. The director moved into the neighbourhood in 2013, in a house restituted to her family.
The move awoken scars, intergenerational scars.

This documentary explores the history of Khoekhoegowab, the collective term used for South Africa’s indigenous languages, which are currently on the brink of extinction.
The Khoe and San people are regarded as the most ancient human communities on earth and there language is one of the oldest on the planet. The film focuses on the impact of colonialism and Apartheid, as well as the subsequent institutionalisation of English and Afrikaans in South Africa, and the quest to eradicate the Khoe-San mother tongue.
By offering an overview of various colonial laws and the strategic acquisition of land by the Dutch and British, this insightful documentary sketches the forgotten story of how South Africa’s First People were left landless with their culture and language virtually annihilated.
The film explores the undercurrent of a movement in the Khoe-Khoen community to reclaim and re-learn the language after centuries of suppression.

The second installment of the trilogy explores the clandestine genocide of South Africa’s indigenous people. Director Weaam Williams embarks on a personal journey that is one of initial optimism and awe of indigenous communities, leading her to the facts that reveal the genocide that was perpetrated on them.
The film touches on issues of race-based science and social Darwinism, with the remains of indigenous people having been exported to Europe in aid of race-based pseudo science, with special reference to the infamous case of Sarah Baartman.
