African Cowboy

Some genre spice (it's what you've been asking for isn't it)...

Screening at the Pan African Film Festival, which starts tonight, with Vipaka, the opening night film, check out this *African Western* titled African Cowboy, written and directed by Rodney Charles.

It's actually a film that I highlighted about 2 years ago, but haven't hear anything of it since then; so learning about this screening was a nice surprise.

Its synopsis reads:

A Namibian cowboy is beaten and left for dead in the vast desert, after standing up to a trans-national posse of brutal land-grabbers. However, things change when he's rescued by a mysterious gun-slinger with reasons of his own to get even with the posse.

Sounds intriguing enough, right?

If only the trailer were a bit more convincing... but it tickled my interest enough that I'd like to check it out. The landscape definitely adds to its visual appeal.

It's a short film by the way, and it'll screen at the following times at the PAFF: Sun, Feb 10 @ 2:30p; Tue, Feb 12 @ 1:10p; Sat, Feb 16 @ 5:00p

Watch the trailer below, and you'll find the poster underneath as well:
