More about the project
The working title of the film is The Castle. The Castle is one of the oldest colonial buildings in South Africa. The film takes us on a journey into the real history of the Cape Castle of Good Hope. This film revolves around the real history of the curse of the Governor named Pieter Gysbert Van Noorde. Captain Rudolf Alleman gave first account of the governor's death. This story has inspired us to do the project at the Castle.
We will also have two go pro’s attached to Lana and Sheela’s head.
Me and my co-director are very passionate about this project. We want to bring something new and not too far fetched to local film.
