    Endless River is first SA film to compete at the Venice International Film Festival

    11 August 2015

    Great article in Times Live on Endless River – produced by Genevieve Hofmeyr and Marvin Saven of Moonlighting Films and Didier Costet of Swift Productions. The team last collaborated together with Oliver Hermanus on his award winning “Skoonheid”.

    Oliver Hermanus’s new film, The Endless River,has bagged two prestigious nominations at the Venice International Film Festival.

    The Endless River, shot in the small town of Riviersonderend in the Western Cape, has been nominated for the Golden Lion award. Its lead actress, Crystal Donna Roberts, has been nominated as Best Actress. Hermanus said the invitation to a premiere and nominations for the awards made him feel “pretty good”. “My hope is for the film to be seen by the largest possible audience and to inspire new work by my peers.” Hermanus said he was not sure when the film – shot last year – would be released locally.

    For 30-year-old Roberts this is her “first big film role” despite having done theatre. “It’s obviously quite overwhelming. I’m so proud to be part of this,” she said. Roberts plays a small-town waitress alongside French actor Nicolas Duvauchelle, who plays a French expatriate. He forms an unlikely bond with the waitress after the brutal murder of his family on a farm.

    The 72nd festival, from September 2 to12, is the world’s oldest film festival.

    Hermanus, who also directed the films Skoonheid and Shirley Adams , will compete against 20 other filmmakers.
