Discover the local talent in KROTOA; the Newest Proudly South African Film

Catch a glimpse at the critically acclaimed film here!

Last Update 30 May 2017

We all love watching local talent soar to incredible heights - so let's celebrate the upcoming release of KROTOA - the latest critically acclaimed film to come out of our country. The incredible trailer released 30 May 2017 will give you chills! This remarkable drama tells the story of a feisty, bright, young eleven-year old girl (Charis Williams), who is removed from her close-knit Khoi tribe to serve Dutch colonialist, Jan van Riebeeck (Armand Aucamp), her uncle’s trading partner.  

KROTOA is inspired by real-life historical events making it worth the watch not only for pure cinematic entertainment but to expand your knowledge of South Africa’s history too. The film has already won eight coveted awards, including an Award of Excellence at the International Film Festival for Women, Social Issues and Zero Discrimination, a Best of Show at the Depth of Field International Film Festival; a Platinum Award at the International Movie Awards; a Diamond Award at the Filmmakers World Festival; a Best of Show at the IndieFEST Film Awards; an Award of Excellence Special Mention: Women Filmmakers at the Accolade Global Film Competition; a World Platinum Award at the World Woman Awards and an award for Best Film at the Harlem International Film Festival held in New York.

KROTOA is a striking tale about a woman, who was prepared to sacrifice everything to give birth to the great nation we all share today. It not only has a powerful message, which anyone can relate to, but also promises to take moviegoers on an epic adventure back in time.

KROTOA was produced by the SAFTA Award-winning film company, Penguin Films, in association with kykNET. The film will be released in cinemas, nationwide, on 4 August 2017, and is distributed by Ster-Kinekor Entertainment.
