The Last Voyage   1064

Release date: Mon 6 Jul 2009
Running time:48 (0h48’)
Age restriction:

Independent filmmaker, Genadendal-born Roaam Hendricks takes a journey back into his past as his present becomes a complicated place - his father is dying of cancer, his mother is battling to keep the household together, and the ghosts of yesterday are threatening to overwhelm the present.

As he steps back, family secrets and long-held hurts are revealed that, if the future is to be better than the past, must be confronted.

The film is an unabashedly personal trip, with the director-filmmaker at the very heart of the story. This proximity lends it an arrestingly uninhibited quality, where the traditional barriers of documentary filmmaking are dismantled, exposing a raw immediacy that is both fascinating and engrossing.

Genre: Documentary
Directed by: Riaan Hendricks
