(Christiaan Olwagen, 2018, South Africa, 127 Minutes) Winner 1 Award
Christiaan Olwagen, who was selected for the 2018 Berlinale Talent Campus, adapts the classic play, The Seagull, by Anton Chekhov, to film and places it in South Africa in the 1990’s, almost one hundred years after it was written. Performed in Afrikaans, with English subtitles, the characters are easily recognised, yet appear as if they were written for this new setting.
DIE SEEMEEU had its world premiere at the Moscow International Film Festival in South Africa and it will continue to tour the international festival circuit during 2018/2019.
