Director Statement

Ndinomholo Ndilula:
The health of a nation can be gauged by the health of its people. As Namibians, we have spent the last year responding to an unknown entity which posed a threat to our physical health, our mental wellness and our economic development. The coronavirus pandemic, however, called for Namibians of all backgrounds to stand together and save each other whilst sharing hope.

At the forefront of our nation's defence against Covid-19 are the health sector professionals who show their resilience, bravery and heroism by living out their oaths of service. I honour the women, men and gender-non-conforming members of our community who set aside their own personal fear and who risk their own lives to ensure the safety of the whole community. Ondapandula vamwameme.

In Season 2 of the Walking Forward series, I was honouredand delighted to sit down with different healthcare workers to learn about their personal and professional experience of the pandemic. The healthcare sector comprises human beings and this season seeks to celebrate the individuals as well as the institutions. The series also employs an expanded approach by considering those who play a part in the broader physical health and mental wellness of the community. There is no easy way to talk about the individual and communal losses that we continue to face, but it is up to us all to be brave, to do our part and to do what we can to curb the further spread of Covid-19.

​I am excited for you, the audience, to meet these incredible heroes who are still hard at work today to ensure our nation's future.

Tim Huebschle:
The year is 2021. The coronavirus still controls life in Namibia. A lot of uncertainty remains during the second year of the pandemic.

Building on the docuseries format we developed during the first season of Walking Forward where Ndinomholo interviewed individuals from the arts and cultural sector, in Season 2 we introduce our audience to the people who have to keep on fighting, day in, day out, for all of us. The healthcare sector offers many stories of heroism and managing the impact of Covid as best possible, given the nature of the beast. Stories that all of us should hear.

Walking Forward Season 2 is a tribute to those who from Day 1 had to navigate the reality of a global health crisis, choosing their battles and retaining a positive mindset throughout.

Dealing with the medical impact of the pandemic itself is not a light subject matter. So it’s about tastefully unpacking the somewhat ruthless reality and providing our audience with the opportunity to gain valuable insights along the way. The episodes showcase individuals who are on the frontline and who can help us all better understand the situation we currently refer to as normal. Through their dedication and determination we are inspired to carry on walking forward into a yet unknown future.
