handheld Films
handheld Films is an independent videoproduction company that specialises in the making of cinema verite documentaries with an emphasis on issue driven stories and human rights. Their films have been described as ‘brutally honest’, ‘quirky and often quite funny’ but ‘always real’. Their fly-on-the-wall camera technique adds an authenticity and accessibility to their work, which has endeared them to the wider South African public. Their films have been well received internationally and Umgidi won the Award of Excellence at the 2005 Society for Visual anthropology (SVA) film and video film festival Washington 2005. In 2008 it was selected as one of the best 12 films from the African continent at the Miami University African Film Festival – The latest and the greatest in African filmmaking. Their work is used in many international universities as cultural teaching tools. The company is run by husband and wife team Gillian and Sipho. Kai helps out with direction on occasion.
