Acclaimed filmmaker, Regardt van den Bergh, known for movies such as Faith like Potatoes, Klein Karoo and many others will once again speak to the hearts of audiences with the release of his brand new feature film, UITVLUCHT, which will première at the kykNET Silwerskerm Festival on 27 August 2015.
UITVLUCHT is a drama and tells the story of Anna (Clara Joubert van den Bergh), a teacher who through an extramarital affair loses everything that matters to her in life. In her heartache she finds a job at a farm school called Uitvlucht in the Eastern Cape. As she is confronted with the choices she made in her life, she slowly starts experiencing healing and restoration and learns to forgive herself. She starts accepting her circumstances and the fact that someone will love her again. With the support of the teachers and Dok (Stian Bam) – a kind hearted and friendly farmer who visits the school and makes friends with Anna – she finds the courage to re-build herself and others around her.
Besides her own drama, Anna must also suddenly deal with the alcohol abuse of school parents, molestation and ruthless people who have no respect for their own lives.
This is a story of hope in a hopeless situation; grace in a desperate situation and of love that conquers all!
