"Moffie" opens in the UK from Friday on Curzon Home Cinemas and Oliver Hermanus will be doing a live Q&A on Friday night at 8:30pm.
To be a moffie is to be weak, effeminate, illegal. The year is 1981 and South Africa’s white minority government is embroiled in a conflict on the southern Angolan border. Like all white boys over the age of 16, Nicholas Van der Swart must complete two years of compulsory military service to defend the Apartheid regime.
The threat of communism and “die swart gevaar” (the so-called black danger) is at an all-time high. But that’s not the only danger Nicholas faces. He must survive the brutality of the army – something that becomes even more difficult when a connection is sparked between him and a fellow recruit.
The film is available exclusively on the Curzon Cinema Home and tickets are available here.
This is one not to miss!
