The Story

“An enthralling edge-of-the-seat thriller.” — Cineuropa

Visionary South African filmmaker Jahmil X.T. Qubeka reimagines the story of John Kepe, an Indigenous Ned Kelly-like outlaw in 1950s South Africa who robbed from white colonist farmers and gave to the impoverished Indigenous poor, becoming a threat to the foundations of Apartheid society. Offering an swashbuckling ride into the heart of pre-Apartheid South Africa, this epic and visceral feature shares a rarely-told chapter of South Africa’s colonial history.
