Newly shot Afrikaans drama Swartwater premiered on Tuesday 11 February at 19h30 on SABC2 after the successful screening of the series Geraamtes in die Kas, which was created by Luke and Joshua Rous and produced by Rous Hous Productions.
Swartwater was shot over six months in Arniston, a picturesque fishing village in the Western Cape, with additional filming in Johannesburg.
Produced by Quizzical Pictures, Swartwater was jointly directed by John Trengove, Jozua Malherbe and Denny Y Miller.
In the series, married couple Francois (Louw Venter) and Karen (Jana Strydom) go through the tragic experience of losing their only child and move to Swartwater to get away from everything. While living there, they both find their place in the community, which leads to revelations about their (and others’) deepest secrets, scandals, loves and much more.
Swartwater also stars, among others, Dirk Stoltz, Vilje Maritz, Rika Sennett, Louis van Niekerk, Annie Malan and Noluthando Meje.
