Khoe-Khoegowab film to premiere on July 15

Known for her award winning film “Hip Hop Revolution” and other productions, filmmaker Weaam Williams has turned her skills to Khoe-Khoegowab or Khoekhoe (family), a language continuum once commonly referred to as “Hottentot” but now considered derogatory.

Although South Africa has 11 official languages, Khoekhoe is not one of them and it is in danger of dying.

On July 15, the first of Williams’s three-part series, “A Khoe Story Part 1: Reclaiming the Mother Tongue” will be screened at the Labia in Cape Town, South Africa.

Read the article “New SA doc explores dying indigenous language” on the ScreenAfrica website for more information.
