Black South-Easter

I'm appreciating the wave of black South African genre films we've seen in recent years, from How To Steal 2 Million to today's feature, Black South-Easter, which like the former is also a crime thriller, and everything else between.

Black South-Easter is an upcoming South African crime thriller starring Tony Kgoroge, Fana Mokoena, Yu Nan, Deon Lotz, Thomas Gumede and Zolani Mahola, directed by Carey McKenzie and produced by Tendeka Matatu. 

Here's its synopsis:

As the annual “Black South-Easters” blow dark clouds over Table Mountain, bringing storms to Cape Town, the ill winds of corruption blow through the city’s townships. In a murky moral underworld where men are challenged with daily temptations, their survival depends not only on physical courage, but also the courage to stand up for their principals. One honest cop finds his tested by a gangland warlord, Triad smugglers, and a police department that will sell itself to the highest bidder.

It's been a long road for the project, which was part of the Berlinale Talent Project Market in 2008, before S&A was born.

The film is currently in post-production with a 2013 debut expected.

No trailer yet, but check out a few still images above and below.

One to definitely watch...
