Treurgrond opens in cinemas


Treurgrond – the painful story of a farming community in South Africa trying to survive the numerous farm attacks confronting farmers almost every day – opened this past weekend at cinemas around South Africa earning R749 286 off 42 prints in its opening weekend.

“We are incredibly pleased with the result,’ said the film’s producer Samuel Frauenstein. “South Africans need to be exposed to such a painful and difficult subject matter to spark debate and face some of the issues facing the country.’

In Treurgrond, amidst the pressure and anxiety increased by the growing number of farm murders, Lukas Van Staden tries to protect his family, his friends and his farm.

Treurgrond is now showing at cinemas nationwide.
