Iza uHambe Nam // Come Walk With Me

A visual poem about our storytelling adventures across Africa.

We have been humbled by the dignity and beauty of the people and places of this continent we get to call home.
We hope to continue learning, laughing and sharing.

Come walk with us.

Director Statement

“What an artist is trying to do for people is bring them closer to something, because of course art is about sharing: you wouldn’t be an artist unless you wanted to share an experience, a thought. I am constantly preoccupied with how to remove distance so that we can all come closer together, so that we can all begin to sense that we are the same, we are one.” David Hockney

James runs Sinamatella Productions, an African-based, independent film-making company that aims to tell interesting, dynamic, beautiful, redemptive stories through the documentary film format.

Over the past 6 years, the company has developed a track record of taking documentary films from a seed of an idea through to big screens (film festivals from Istanbul to Vancouver) and small screens (through broadcast deals in USA, Canada, Australia, Europe & Africa). Our films have won awards on four continents.

We have filmed on location in Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Italy.
