Internationally Acclaimed Local Action Film, “Indemnity” Opening In SA Tomorrow

Following its overseas premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival last year, local edge-of-your-seat action film, INDEMNITY, will open in South African cinemas on 13 May 2022.

The film, South African writer-director Travis Taute’s debut feature, raked in praises from international media after its international release earlier this year. Its exclusive local media preview, which took place on 28 April, was also very well received, with best-selling author, film critic and award-winning lecturer Leon van Nierop calling it “the bravest, best and most balanced South African action film ever to be made”.

INDEMNITY tells the story of Theo Abrahams (Jarrid Geduld), an ex-fireman suffering from severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a theme which is extensively explored in the film. Unable to return to work, Theo turns to alcohol and becomes increasingly frustrated and volatile.

His world is rocked when his journalist wife Angela (Nicole Fortuin) is murdered – and he is the prime suspect. Theo soon finds himself on the run from the police for a murder he is positive he didn’t commit. As he is hunted by Deputy Chief Alan Shard (Andre Jacobs) and Detective Rene Williamson (Gail Mabalane), connections are revealed between his past, the origin of his PTSD, the murder of his wife, and a government conspiracy with chilling implications.

INDEMNITY is an intense and impressive film which moves from one thrilling action set to the next with Taute, who co-wrote Nosipho Dumisa’s award-winning Number 37 and the Netflix series Blood & Water, showcasing his talent as an action director.

Driven by SAFTA-award winning Geduld’s stellar performance, this paranoid conspiracy thriller seamlessly weaves together punchy action sequences with a story of heart and emotion. Described by Los Angeles Times as “a stylish, high-stakes thriller laced with eroticism and subterfuge”, the film is testament to the quality of local films and proves that South African talent measures up to international standards.

INDEMNITY was produced by Gambit Films, in association with M-Net Films, Marche Media, National Film and Video Foundation and the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition.

It is locally distributed by Filmfinity Pty (Ltd.) and will be released in South African cinemas on 13 May 2022. Tickets can be pre-booked at: https://www.sterkinekor.com/details/HO00002349/indemnity

Internasionaal Bekroonde Aksieprent “Indemnity” Vanaf Môre In Plaaslike Bioskope Te Sien

Na die suksesvolle bekendstelling van die fliek by die Fantasia Internasionale Rolprentfees in Kanada verlede jaar, word INDEMNITY uiteindelik in plaaslike bioskope vrygestel op 13 Mei 2022.

Dié rolprent, Suid-Afrikaanse skrywer en regisseur – Travis Taute – se debuut-film, is baie goed ontvang deur oorsese kritici. Dit het ook plaaslike media beïndruk tydens die eksklusiewe media-voorskou wat op 28 April plaasgevind het en die bekroonde skrywer, rolprentresensent en dosent, Leon van Nierop, beskryf dit as “die dapperste, mees gewaagde en gebalanseerde Suid-Afrikaanse aksierolprent wat nog ooit gemaak is.”

INDEMNITY vertel die storie van Theo Abrahams (Jarrid Geduld), ’n voormalige brandweerman wat aan Posttraumatiese stresversteuring (PTSV) ly, wat homself aan drank oorgee omdat hy nie kan teruggaan werk toe nie.

Theo se wêreld word op sy kop gedraai wanneer sy vrou en joernalis, Angela (Nicole Fortuin), vermoor word en hy die hoof-verdagte is. Dit dwing om hom om van die polisie te vlug, aangesien hy oortuig is dat hy onskuldig is. Soos wat die saak ondersoek word deur adjunk-hoof, Alan Shard (Andre Jacobs), en speurder, Rene Williamson (Gail Mabalane), word onthullings gemaak oor sy verlede, wat sy PTSV veroorsaak het, wat met sy vrou gebeur het en ’n regeringsameswering met drastiese gevolge.

INDEMNITY, ’n intense en indrukwekkende rolprent wat gemaklik vloei van een aksietoneel na die volgende, stel Taute (mede-skrywer van Nosipho Dumisa se bekroonde Nommer 37 en die Netflix-reeks Blood & Water) se vernuf as skrywer en regisseur op ’n nuwe vlak ten toon.

Gedryf deur die SAFTA-bekroonde Geduld se uitstaande toneelspel, verweef hierdie paranoïese samesweringsriller opwindende aksietonele met ’n emosionele storielyn en ’n kragtige boodskap. Dié prent, wat deur New York Times beskryf word as “’n stylvolle riller, vol erotiek en bedrog,” dien as bewys dat plaaslike rolprente en talent aan internasionale standaarde voldoen.

INDEMNITY is deur Gambit Films vervaardig, in samewerking met M-Net Films, Marche Media, Die Nasionale Rolprent- en Videostigting en Die Departement van Handel, Nywerheid en Mededinging.

Dit word plaaslik versprei deur Filmfinity Edms (Bpk.) en sal op 13 Mei 2022 in plaaslike bioskope te sien wees. Kaartjies kan vooraf bespreek word by https://www.sterkinekor.com/details/HO00002349/indemnity
