Cinema lovers have something special to look forward to this March – the release of South Africa’s very own ‘chick flick’ Susters!
Susters is directed by Corne Van Rooyen (Hollywood in my Huis, Vaselinetjie) from a script by Corine Du Toit (As Jy Sing, Alles Wat Mal Is) and Sandra Vaughn (As Jy Sing, Semi-Soet), the writing team behind a number of films and television projects. Sunel Haasbroek serves as cinematographer. Susters is produced by Jenny Griesel, known for her work across radio, cinema, television, PR and multiple charity initiatives in South Africa; and award-winning songwriter Johan Vorster.
Susters follows the story of three adopted sisters who, over time, have become estranged, and are reunited after the death of their mother. Her last wishes include sending them on a road trip down memory lane, filled with interesting characters, beautiful places and plenty of laughs along the way.
The cast includes award-winning singer Leah (As Jy Sing) whose latest album reached platinum status, Diaan Lawrenson (Semi-Soet, Paula on 7de Laan), and Quanita Adams (Tess, Material). Veteran actress Annelisa Weiland (7de Laan), plays the sisters’ forward thinking, courageous mom. Audiences can also look forward to a host of favourite stars in cameo roles including Jo Black and Lida Botha.
The film boasts a hit-filled soundtrack with the theme song Nooit Alleen, performed by Leah and Jo Black, already reaching number 1 on several radio stations across the country.
Susters was made possible by a collaboration between Inhoud Huis Media, and Kyknet, and will release in cinema nationwide on 30 March 2018.
