Women in Arms


This short film was created by the team at Ilizwi Lenyaniso Lomhlaba to highlight the crucial role that women are playing in claiming space, dreaming new futures, and implementing militant action at the frontlines of land justice in South Africa. We created it for a collaboration between the Support Centre for Land Change and Tshintsha Amakhaya where they brought women activists from across the Karoo to Graaff-Reinet for a conference on 22-24 August 2019. The film was one of four featured in the ‘Changemakers in Film Summit: Dissecting the gender issues surrounding social advocacy in post – conflict societies’ (21 July 2021).
