Sixty years ago, in an obscure corner of Africa, the only survivor of a light aircraft crash was a baby boy. Perhaps it was the miracle of his survival that gave him the gift of “sight,” and he became a Sangoma, the seer of the Kuvuki tribe, interpreting the wishes of The Great One through the throwing of the bones. Hence his name, “Bones.” Today, at an advanced age but still fit in mind and body, his mission is to pass on his wisdom to his son, Mathambo, and guide him into manhood – a mission doomed to fail because of both of their obsessive personalities.

#MrBones3

South African comedy with Alfred Ntombela in the lead role, while Leon Schuster stars alongside Jay Anstey (“Legacy,” “Inconceivable”) as Gabrielle and Wandile Molebatsi (“Deep State,” ‘Hear Me Move’) as Malabanga. Prolific Gray Hofmeyr, who directed the first two films and created such cultural icons as “Isidingo,” “Suburban Bliss” (1996) and ‘Jock of the Bushveld’ (1986), directs.

‘Mr. Bones 3, Son of Bones’ was produced in collaboration with M-Net and Film Chrome, with support from the Department of Trade, Industry, and Competition and the National Empowerment Fund.


In the sequel to 2008ʼs ‘Mr. Bones 2: Back from the Past’ and 2001ʼs ‘Mr. Bones,’ a young boy overcomes challenges to prove himself a man. Leon Schuster and Alfred Ntombela star alongside Wandile Molebatsi and Jay Antsey.

The storyline of ‘Mr. Bones 3, Son of Bones’ begins at the turn of the 20th Century, when we witness (flashback) the burying of the Kruger millions by two Boer soldiers, who then kill each other through idiotic greed, leaving the Kruger millions hidden in a graveyard in Kuvukiland. Now, in the present, a scrawny businessman named Alvin (Moonsammy) and his Texan engineer partner named Jack (Janks), together with their beautiful guide, Gabrielle (Anstey) are plotting to mine for oil in the pristine land which would leave it an oily mess. Bones and Mathambo must devise a way to outsmart the opinionated Westerners. Of course, as their plan unfolds, so do many other unexpected twists and turns, with hilarious effect.
