Yunus Vally is a South African designer and filmmaker best known for writing, directing and appearing in his own documentary film The Glow of White Women.
Yunus studied Fine Art at University of Durban Westville.
With his art background he painted banners for various political organisations and through design he became involved in work for Adult Literacy and the South African Council for Higher Education.
He moved to Nambia for a while and worked for development organisations as a designer and archivist.
On his return to South Africa he moved from hand drawn work to digital media and joined a small television group called Times Media TV. The company became very successful and for seven years he designed opening sequences, logos and various digital media.
He then decided he wanted to do a project of his own. In 2004 he responded to a call from the SABC, inviting black documentary filmmakers to make films about white people.
The Glow of White Women is his first film.
