Announced in September, Weldun Media’s Four Walls is a short-limited series, in association with the National Film & Video Foundation and Gauteng Film Commission, that follows a married nurse, Grace Molotsi (Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa). Grace is a woman at her wits end who has her house invaded by two thugs on the run from the cops after a cash in transit robbery gone wrong. The helpless woman is taken hostage by the thugs whilst they’re planning their next move. What the men don’t know is that Grace has a secret of her own.
“Playing Grace was incredibly fun for me as a performer. As I had the responsibility to ensure that the story of many women was told in an authentic and heartwarming manner. I had to ensure that every second was jampacked with Grace thinking, feeling, walking and breathing like a woman who is experiencing the most severe kind of GBV. Also bringing it home and letting people into homes with women who go through such abuse, the desperation that comes with it so they may feel some form of empathy and start conversation that leads to real change in a country ridden with painful statistics of GBV”.
Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa The short-limited series, set for an international festival premiere and run in 2022, also stars Khulu Skenjane and Jeff Jackson as Grootman and Dice respectively. Viewers can also look forward to watching Gift Leotlela, Terrence Ngwila as Lefa and Xolani, and the legendary Isaac Matseke Zulu as the Voice of Ace.
The short-limited series is written and directed by Kgosana Monchusi (“A Safe Bet”, “Opus”), Juvais Dunn and Menzi Mzimela. Director Kgosana Monchusi had this to say, “We wanted to create a suspense drama that would keep viewers on the edge of their seats, but as much as this is a gripping thrill ride, the issue of Gender-Based Violence had to be handled with the utmost sensitivity and introspection as male director’s contributing to the GBV conversation, the events of the series are therefore uncomfortable and thought-provoking.”
Premiere dates for ‘Four Walls’ are set to be announced soon.
