The other night at the movies and I saw the trailer for FOUR CORNERS, which launches in cinemas this Friday the 28th of March. The film was South Africa’s Official Selection for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards © and International Press Academy 2014 Satellite Award © Nominee for Best International Film.
If the trailer is anything to go by then I think this movie is going to be well worth watching, it looks so well produced an filmed and it had me pulled in from the first shot. I think the team behind this piece should be very proud of themselves, and even though I haven’t watched it yet, I’m super keen to and I think it would be cool if you guys supported it too. Go South Africa, go.
– Four Corners tells the story of a young chess prodigy who must defy the odds and stay one move ahead of the gangs – in a game where winning or losing can mean the difference between life and death. The film plays out aspects of the war fought and reported daily on the streets of the Cape Flats, home to the Number Gang factions of the Western Cape.
