Collegian Talk: Screening of Uitgesmyt

On Wednesday the 15th of May, as part of the Collegian Talk series, we will be screening Uitgesmyt followed by a Q&A with the director and producer of the documentary, Dr Siona O'Connell. 

This documentary focuses on the effects of forced removals, land restitution, and the after-effects for communities years down the line. It tracks the lives of the Elandskloof farming community in the Cederberg region of the Western Cape and highlights the shortcomings and challenges of land  restitution.


Professor Siona O'Connell is the NEH Distinguished Professor of the Humanities at Colgate University in the USA  as well as a professor in The School of the Arts, University of Pretoria. O’Connell has directed and produced several film documentaries that resulted from her research projects on identity, memory, and belonging in post-apartheid South Africa. Her research interests include visual studies, memory, and restorative justice in postcolonial and post-apartheid South Africa.
