Well-known South African director / DOP Rene Smith passed away on 14 July in Canada. His wife, Julie Coghlan, writes:
He was my North, my South, my East and West.
My working week and my Sunday rest.

I have had queries regarding contributions to a charity, in lieu of flowers:
Rene would have liked to have been able to steward Oliver through his education as a meaningful part of Rene’s legacy and his son’s future. We will be setting up a trust fund that people may contribute to in support of Oliver’s university tuition. If you wish to contribute, contact CarynMladen at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will forward details.
