Italian première

The director has reinterpreted the black South African legend of John Kepe into a sumptuous thriller in a Western style, an epic film set in the 1950s in pre-Apartheid South Africa. Known as the Samson of Boschberg, this rebel hero of the marginalized blacks terrorized the white people’s farms with his raids and became a myth in popular lore.
