SA High Commission to host Beyond the River premiere in London
To mark Freedom Day on 27 April 2019, the South African High Commission in the United Kingdom will host the premiere of Beyond the River in London. Following the premiere, the London Telegraph will host a special Q&A session with the cast and, on 28 April 2019, the film will be screened in 40 movie theatres throughout the city.
Beyond the River is a 2017 South African film loosely based on the true story of the sporting partnership between Piers Cruickshanks, of the Dabulamanzi Canoe Club, and Siseko Ntondini, of the Soweto Canoe and Recreation Club, who won gold against all odds in the 2014 Dusi Canoe Marathon.
The film comes on the back of a 16-year partnership and social development project led by outdoor advertising and integrated marketing specialists ADreach Group together with the Soweto Canoe and Recreation Club (SCARC).
