(Craig Freimond, 2017, South Africa, Feature Film) *Winner of 1 SAFTA Award*
Two men from vastly different walks of life are brought together by their determination to win gold in one of the toughest river races in the world, the Dusi Canoe Marathon. Inspired by the true story of Siseko Ntondini and Piers Cruickshanks, who together won gold in the 2014 Dusi, Beyond the River delivers a nail-biting adventure story about the triumph of the human spirit.
After a successful 60 cinema screen theatrical run in South Africa, BEYOND THE RIVER had its international premiere at the Busan International Film Festival 2017. It is currently touring the international festival circuit and has screened in competition at the Tallin Black Nights Film Festival, Sonoma International Film Festival & the Cathage International Film Festival, ahead of its European theatrical release in late 2018.
