In addition to the exciting announcement of the music video and DVD-release, accolades are still streaming in for director, Nosipho Dumisa, who was recently awarded the Silwerlens Award at the annual Silwerskermfees in Cape Town. She also won the Cheval Noir Jury Prize for Best Director at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, Canada, last month for her debut motion picture.
Originally from Durban but based in Cape Town, Nosipho has directed countless commercials, television pilots, reality TV pilots, lifestyle shows and short films. She is also one of the producers of the hit kykNET soap opera, Suidooster.
This production, which had its world premiere at the International SXSW Film Festival in Texas, was selected to represent the country at the 18th annual Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival (NIFFF) in Switzerland from 6 to 14 July 2018 and also featured at the Sydney Film Festival in June 2018. Dark Star Pictures gained exclusive North American distribution rights for the film earlier this year. The North American screening of the full-length feature will kick off in New York and L.A., followed by an early winter video-on-demand release. Reel Suspects has also managed to clinch distribution deals for the film in China, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Japan.
NUMBER 37 is a thrilling big-screen cinematic experience based on the SAFTA-award-winning short film of the same name, which was co-directed by Nosipho Dumisa and Travis Taute. It is one of those movies that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats until the credits start rolling and tells the story of Randal Hendricks, a recent paraplegic, who is given a gift of binoculars by his devoted girlfriend, Pam (Monique Rockman). But he is in financial debt to Emmie (Danny Ross), a sadistic loan shark, and when he witnesses a powerful criminal, named Lawyer (David Manuel), commit murder while observing his neighbours through his binoculars, he initiates a blackmail scheme in an attempt to settle his debt. With deception and greed around every corner, what follows is a thrilling ride that puts both their lives in mortal danger… as the world around Randal deteriorates further and further into chaos.
The film was produced by Bradley Joshua and Benjamin Overmeyer of South African production outfit Gambit Films in association with kykNET Films, M-Net, XYZ Films and the DTI, and was distributed by Filmfinity (Pty) Ltd. locally. Sandi Schultz, Deon Lotz, Elton Landrew, Ephraim Gordon and Amrain Ismail-Essop can also be seen in this motion picture.
The DVD will be available for hire on BoxOffice from 3 September 2018 and will be available for purchase from retail outlets from 7 September 2018.
