‘No. 9 Hellier Street’ is a short documentary about Geoff’s thoughts on inheriting his late father’s possessions. It is my application for the DocNomads Masters for 2020-2022.

Last year bought with it the baring witness of my partner’s bereavement of his father. The grief was often glittered with stories about Justin’s life and belongings, and a continued opportunity for Geoffrey to get to know his father better. Geoff and Justin only met four years prior to Justin’s passing.

Justin Wells (1962-2019) was a man with lived hands and mischievous eyes. He loved tea and Jimi Hendrix. And he was an artist who would often repurpose disposed items and sculpted them into a new life. He lived at No. 9 Hellier Street in Troyeville, Johannesburg.

A short doc by Nicola Pilkington.
