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:
