Based on the true story of John Kepe, an Apartheid-era folk hero who proclaimed himself the «Samson of the Boschberg,» Jahmil X.T. Qubeka's (OF GOOD REPORT) third feature is a keenly observed epic adventure that captures the horrors of South Africa's racist colonial regime. For decades, Kepe stole livestock and other goods from white colonist farmers and shared his spoils with the impoverished indigenous population. He inevitably became a political threat to the very fabric of the ruling colonial society. He evaded capture for 12 years before he was brought before a court and sentenced to death for a murder that he might or might not have committed. Rejecting dialogue, Qubeka relies on an immersive score and visual cues, and through his evocative formal choices, probes, as he says, «mankind's inherent need to feed into mythologies that conveniently suit the order of the day.»

Official Selection, 2018 Toronto and Busan film festivals.

In English, Afrikaans and Xhosa with English subtitles.
