Production support


Adopting the camera as a tool for curiosity, filmmaker Eva Grace Bor archives cross-generational oral histories from her family, contextualising them within current day Zimbabwe. The film highlights the implicit and nuanced ways the legacy of British colonialism affects sense of self amongst the coloured community. What was the process of becoming ‘coloured’ under the Rhodesian regime of segregation and what was the cost of the privilege afforded to coloured people in terms of cultural erasure and a sense of belonging?
