On Friday, 5 April, Whale Coast Mall in Hermanus is celebrating the release of Christiaan Olwagen's film version of 'DIE SEEMEEU' at Whale Coast Theatre.

Filming took place in the Stanford and Hermanus region in 2017 and the producers decided to celebrate the first day of national release in the Hermanus area. Therefore, the producers decided that it would make sense to celebrate the first day of national release in the Hermanus area.

Christiaan Olwagen (Johnny is nie dood nie, Kanarie) adapts the classic play, ‘The Seagull’, by Anton Chekhov, to film and places it in South Africa in the 1990’s, almost one hundred years after it was written.

Performed in Afrikaans, with English subtitles, the characters are easily recognised, yet appear as if they were written for this new setting.

TIMES:
5 April at 18:00
6 - 11 April at 12:30 and 17:30

'Die Seemeeu' se première op Hermanus

Volgens die Kunsredaksie van Die Burger-dagblad “speel die fliek af op 'n familieplaas waar 'n uitgebreide gesin vergader. Getrouu aan Tsjechof se inslag wroeg die karakters met die lewe en hulself.

Irene (Sandra Prinsloo) is a teaterdiva, gewoond aan haar dae van roem op die verhoog, maar moet nou aanvaar dat sy nog net op kunstefeeste kan optree.

Irene se sieklike ouer broer, Piet (Marius Weyers), peins oor sy verspilde lewe en Konstant (Albert Pretorius) soek maar net aandag en erkenning van sy ma.

Die ander karakters word vertolk deur Cintaine Schutte - wat verlede jaar 'n Silwerskermprys gewen het vir haar vertolking as die teneergedrukte Masha - Rolanda Marais, Gerben kamper, Deon Lotz, Martelize Kolver, Geon Nel en Alyzzander Fourie.
