ter 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 to attend.
    Block booking tickets will be regular cinema price minus 20% to your school during September. (Ticket prices vary from cinema to cinema, average regular cinema being around R35)

    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.

    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.

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, inventors, readers....
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.
