Seven new movies on ShowMax International

If you’re a ShowMax subscriber living overseas, you’re in for a treat with seven stellar new South African movies coming to your screen in April and May. Here’s what you can look forward to.

  1. Johnny Is Nie Dood Nie

Relive the rise of the Voëlvry movement in this award-winning film that bagged seven awards from the prestigious Silwerskermfees.

  1. Abraham

Abraham is undoubtedly one of the best South African films ever made and is a profound masterwork that tells an unforgettable tale that will break your heart; a story that connects with who we are as South Africans and how we fit into the bigger scheme of things.

  1. Dis Koue Kos, Skat

A top South African movie that boasts beautiful cinematography, an A-list cast and world-class direction. It truly is a feast for the eyes in every sense of the word.

  1. Twee Grade Van Moord

Two women, two murders and a stellar cast and surprising twists make this Afrikaans movie compulsory viewing.

  1. Nul Is Nie Niks Nie 

Drikus’s love for life and his determination bring this half-dead community together and give them a new lease on life. Catch this heart-warming story about life, death and everything in between.

  1. Jou Romeo

Yvette and Tyler are the school’s drama geeks who are forced to come up with a plan when funding for their production of Romeo and Juliet gets cut at the last minute. This involves enlisting the most popular boy in school – but not everyone is thrilled when Marko trades his cricket whites for Shakespearean tights…

Due to launch 16 May on ShowMax International.

  1. Jagveld

This is the story of schoolteacher Emma le Roux (Leandie du Randt) who witnessed a violent murder and is then being hunted down in the Karoo by the killers, who have no idea of her secret skilled background in combat. Jagveld is a must-see – the perfect action movie for a Friday night at home.

Due to launch 23 May on ShowMax International.
