“[Phillips] was one of this country’s most aware, articulate and passionate artists.” — IOL
A composer, musician and hard-partying rock ‘n’ roller, James Phillips was the voice and conscience of an entire generation of white South Africans. In 1983, his Afrikaans alter ego Bernoldus Niemand’s single, “Hou My Vas Korporaal” (“Hold Me Tightly, Corporal”) became an anthem of South Africa’s End Conscription Campaign, and spawned a new genre of Afrikaans rock music that sparked and fired a revolution.
Taking the viewer on a rollicking musical ride, The Fun’s Not Over is an intimate portrait of a wildly talented poet painted by those who knew him best.
