Beyond the River Film Screening

Please join us for our OpenAir Cinema evening, for the pre-release screening of the movie “Beyond the River”.  The movie will be launched nationwide on 28 April 2017.

Beyond the River is the nail-biting true story of two men whose quest to win gold connects them on and beyond the river. It is based on the story of Piers Cruikshanks (1992) of Dabulamanzi Canoe Club and Siseko Ntondini of the Soweto Canoe and Recreation Club who, against all odds, won gold in the 2014 Dusi Canoe Marathon.  It is a dramatic adventure story about the triumph of the human spirit.

Lemogang Tsipa makes his leading debut as Duma, a young man on the wrong side of the law but with a passion for canoeing. Alongside him is Grant Swanby, a screen legend.
