After living in Tokyo for a year, a South African spends his final day saying goodbye to friends, visiting the apartment where his parents lived in the 80s and reflecting on the things he left behind before arriving in Japan.
A Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) selected feature, Relics is unique in that it's a full-length narrative film which was made with a crew of only two people, Greg Bakker (producer, director, writer, actor, sound) and Gray Kotzé (producer, DOP). It's a South African story which was produced in Tokyo by Kotzé and Bakker.
"We believe Relics is the first no budget South African narrative feature film made by two people or less to get into an international film festival - and one of a few to do so globally," says Kotzé.
Relics will screen at DIFF on 16 July at 14h00, Gateway Commercial and 22 July at 11h00 Cinema Nouveau.
