Director Jozua Malherbe has just released his latest feature film, the much-anticipated ‘Griekwastad’, co-produced by 7 Films and Scene 23. We do the Zoom thing with Jozua and the team from 7 Films to find out how this joint venture has led to a predominantly long-form director making a predominantly commercials production company his new home and why you should stop trying to recreate TikTok dances and pay attention.
‘Griekwastad’ is based on the bestselling true crime novel by journalist Jacques Steenkamp. The film tells the tale of the search to find the truth around the gruesome murders that took place in 2012. A farmer, his wife and daughter were brutally killed on their farm, and their son, a teenage boy, was the sole survivor. ‘And where can I watch this immediately?’ you ask. Get it on Box Office right now, right here.
Over and above the year-and-a-half that Jozua and the team at 7 Films collaborated on ‘Griekwastad’, they have also been working side-by-side on various projects for over three years, and now, with the release of the film, they have decided to make the relationship ‘bio-on-website’ official.
