The South African documentary ‘District Six Rising From The Dust’ has won an international film festival award for Best Documentary.

 

South Africa (22 June 2021) – Weaam Williams’ documentary, ‘District Six Rising From The Dust’, is a personal tale of her family and how they lost their homes during the worst times in South Africa. The documentary has a powerful message and is making waves internationally.

Earlier this year, the documentary won the “Best Original Story” at the Florence Film Awards in Italy. This past week it has also won the award for Best Documentary at the Beyond the Curve International Film Festival. This is a massive achievement for Weaam Williams and her team at Tribal Alchemy Productions. The documentary has graced the screens of film festivals around the world.

Weaam and Tribal Alchemy Productions worked on the award-winning documentary for six years. Throughout that time, it has been the story of District Six and the atrocities of the Group Areas Act that pushed Weaam to continue. Her family’s story is like many others, but by adding her personal tale into the documentary, it elevated the film to another level.

The documentary is a compilation of Weaam’s personal story, interviews, archival footage, and traditional cultural events.
