Coloured / directed & produced by Siona O'Connell.
Cape Town : Centre for Curating the Archive, University of Cape Town, [2014].
"In Coloured, Siona OConnell focuses on two Cape Town pageants, the Miss Gay Western Cape and Spring Queen, arguing for recognition of a group of people who continue to struggle to find a place in the post-apartheid landscape. The Spring Queen pageant is an annual event in which female factory workers from the clothing and textile industry in the Western Cape strut their stuff on the ramp. The pageant began in the late 1970s at the height of apartheid. Today, thousands of jubilant supporters attend the final event. Miss Gay Western Cape grew out of the Spring Queen pageant and the new South African constitution that was the first in the world to include protection for sexual minorities. The event is a platform for queer and largely coloured men from the Cape Flats to perform in a secure environment without exploitation

Among the most painful burdens Maarit must bear is the longing to revive a fractured relationship with her daughter Pinja (Emmi Nivala). Her life take an unexpected turn the day her employer, a therapist, leaves town on an emergency and entrusts Maarit to secure the office after she is done cleaning it. Maarit can't help but to slightly overstep her bounds once the therapist leaves and explore for a few minutes a taste of this intriguing profession. A man named Sami (Peter Franzn) in the midst of a marital crisis enters unexpectedly seeking solace from the absent therapist but finds only Maarit, whose compassionate nature compels her to try to help in any way she can. The two quickly find that they share some common interests, especially soccer, a sport which was a significant part of Maarit's past life. However, Sami turns out to have deep inhibitions of his own which contend with his professional and personal life in which Maarit becomes dangerously entwined. Not one to live an existence bowing to the superficial expectations of a regimented society, Maarit endures her mistakes and manages to salvage the one relationship that makes her life worth living, and in doing so is able to come to terms with the world around her."--Container

Movie snaps / directed & produced by Siona O'Connell.
Cape Town : Centre for Curating the Archive, University of Cape Town, [2014].
The Movie Snaps studio that began in a building on the edge of the Grand Parade at the start of the second World War, provides the photographic backdrop of Jewish families in South Africa on the one hand, and on the other, the further annihilation and fragmentation of lives legislated through apartheid in 1948. Positioned opposite the Cape Town General Post Office, photographers snapped thousands of Cape Town residents going about their daily lives, continuing this practice for over forty years. Once they crossed the photographers chalk line, they were convinced to take a ticket in the hope that they would purchase the image a few days later from the kiosk. These snapshots show women resplendent in tulle dresses or wearing flared bell-bottoms, sailors boasted their crisp white uniforms while Muslim children celebrated Christmas with their Christian friends. The pictures illustrate moments of ordinary living in extraordinary times. They offer a counterpoint to the now familiar narrative of apartheids series of carefully composed images of burning tires, mass protests and violence and urge a consideration of the afterlives of apartheid
