LETTERS FROM THE CHILDREN
Read some of the many letters received from the children
who have been to see the movie thanks to donations made to the
Kinekor Films Distribution is offering a wonderful opportunity
for schools to attend pre-release screenings of the feature
film The Story of an African Farm,
based on the acclaimed novel by Olive Schreiner. The book was
re-introduced as a set piece in 2004.
The film was recently screened at the Cannes Film Festival.
The Writer and Producer, Bonnie Rodini is a South African living
in Cape Town and has been working to bring the film to life
for the past 12 years. The film stars Richard E. Grant, Karin
Van Der Laag (of Isidingo fame) and three up-and-coming South
African children and was shot on location in the Karoo.
We welcome any number of students, teachers and administrative
staff to attend, but may combine you with another school to
make up the minimum attendance required per cinema. Ster Kinekor
have targeted the film at children aged 6 and up as well as
families, so we are encouraging both Primary Schools and Secondary
- TICKET PRICES

- PRESENTATION BY PRODUCER AND WRITER, BONNIE RODINI
Depending on time and logistics, if a school is able to
assemble 300 students or more (made up of their own students
or in conjunction with another school), the Producer and
Writer, Bonnie Rodini, can attend the school to give a talk
on the making of the film and the relevance of the book.
This will be done with a Power Point presentation and includes
pictures of the set, the actors and ‘the making of’.
We will also be giving away a select number of movie merchandise
hampers and copies of the book, “The Story of an African
Farm, with the compliments of Jonathan Ball Publishers at
the screenings or at the talks, to make it fun and exciting.
- POSTERS AND POSTCARDS
Kindly let us know whether you would be happy for us to
put up a poster for the film at the school and perhaps give
you some postcards for the children to take home.

|AFRICAN FARM OUTREACH PROGRAMME
You can help send an underprivileged child to
see the movie.
Story of An African Farm opened to critical acclaim in
Cannes 2004 and is a classic tale of children overcoming
obstacles to not only survive the situations they find
themselves in, but to reach their own dreams as well...It
is a story of hope and perseverance and what this can
achieve. It will show children the power of books and
education, that dreams can come true if you don't give
up and may inspire children to want to become film makers,
The film succeeds in illustrating this in beautiful detail
and is a must-see for all young South Africans - a global
tale told in a local setting.
Sponsor a child's movie experience and transport
Ster Kinekor have come to the party and have reduced the
ticket price to R20 which includes a small box of pop
corn and coke. This gives the kids the whole movie experience.
Transport to and from the film varies from city to city
but averages are between R10-R17 per child.
Payments can be made directly into the Outreach bank account
see details below:
Sponsor a school - it's tax deductible!
Should you be interested in sponsoring a school to see
the film, the donation will be tax deductible, as the
money would be paid directly to the school which will
be a registered section 21. To send a child will cost
between R30 - R37. Please indicate how many children you
would like to sponsor and from which city and we will
marry the number of children and transport to that number.
