beyond the river

TWO LIVES. ONE JOURNEY.

BEYOND THE RIVER NOMINATED FOR SAFTA AWARDS

Beyond the River was recently nominated in four categories in the South African Film and Television Awards annual competition. These were:

Best Feature Film.

Nominated in the category Best Achievement in Cinematography (Feature Film), our incredibly talented DOP, Trevor Calverley

For the seamless way in which the film integrates footage from a number of different sources, a Best Achievement in Editing (Feature film) nomination for Nicholas Costaras

For his amazing portrayal of Steve Andrews, who was based on the real person, Piers Cruickshanks, a Best actor nomination for Grant Swanby.

 

Two men from vastly different walks of life have one thing in common: to win gold in the most arduous canoe marathon.

But there are a few things in their way. One has a marriage on the verge of collapse. The other is on the run from the law, and his so-called life. Then there’s the minor detail of them never before having competed as a team…

Somewhere along the river of their lives, there’s a confluence that changes both of them - forever.

Inspired by the true story of paddlers Siseko Ntondini and Piers Cruickshanks, Beyond the River will take you on a nail-biting adventure through the hillls and valleys of their lives.
