Watch The Trailer For South African True Crime Drama CALL ME THIEF (NOEM MY SKOLLIE)
South African director Daryne Joshua - writer of stellar short film Nommer 37, which we covered in these pages a while back - makes his feature debut with the upcoming period set crime drama Call Me Thief (Noem My Skollie).
Based on the actual experiences of screenwriter John W Fredericks, the film tells the story of a group of friends growing up in the notorious Cape Flats who form a pact with one another as a means of self preservation and quickly slide into a life of petty gangsterism. When a pair of the group end up in prison one discovers a talent for telling stories and carves out a protected space for himself as the 'prison cinema' and tries to carve out a life for himself on release only to be indicted for a muder he did not commit.
Due for release in South African cinemas in September the first trailer has just arrived and looks quite promising. Take a look below.
