The Hyderabad Film Club, in collaboration with the Federation Of Film Societies Of India is presenting the South African Film Festival from the 21st to the 23rd February, at Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet. A total of 6 films will be screened during the 3-day festival.

Dollars & White Pipes is the first film to be screened at 5pm on the last day of the festival. The film is directed by Donovan Marsh, and has Garth Breytenbach, Clint Brink, Joey Yusuf Rasdien, Jonathan Piennar and Kevin Smith playing some of the characters in the film.

Based on the true life story of Bernie Baatjies, played by Clint Brink, Dollars And White Pipes takes us on an emotional rags-to-riches journey. Bernie dreams of becoming rich and famous like his idol J R Ewing from Dallas, and of owning a convertible, but he lives in an apartment on the Cape, and is confronted with gangsterism, drugs and poverty.

One night, he watches his friend die in a gang fight. This marks the beginning of his journey out into the city. Bernie scams his way into working at a club where he finds favour with the owner (Jonathan Piennar), who is also named Bernard. He works himself up and climbs the ladder of success from bar hand to manager.

However, this new life he lives comes to a halt when the owner shoots the right hand man of Mr. Kuyser (Kevin Smith), a gangster who heads the brotherhood. Bernie soon realizes he has to toughen if he wants to survive.

Entry to the film is free. Please contact Bh S S Prakash Reddy of the Hyderabad Film Club at 2373-0841/93910-20243 for further details.

This movie was beyond brilliant.... I expected everything about the movie to be terrible... But i'm really excited to see that SA film industries are getting to a point where they can hit the market hard. This film had everything in it, comedy, drama, suspense, action.... I think more movies like this need to be released. The actors where really well chosen for the storyline.... 10 out of 10 from my side.

Pros: the start all though to the beginning.
Cons: none that i noticed!
