“Revenge” is the fifth release in the Retro Afrika Collection. The ongoing project is comprised of digitally-remastered classic Apartheid-era films, produced by and starring native South Africans. It pays homage to Hollywood action in groundbreaking B-movie style, a precursor to today’s burgeoning Nollywood industry.
In classic “B-western” styled action, an ex-gunslinger / good Samaritan trains a peace-loving homesteader in the art of revenge. In the Wild West of old Africa, the homesteader moves to a vacant farm in search of a new life. His hopes are shattered when his son is badly beaten and his wife is murdered by a gang of ruthless thugs.
Left for dead in the dirt, he’s revived by an ex-gunslinger whose hermitage in the hills is the perfect place for training rescued victims to not only protect themselves but to seek revenge.
1985 / 56 minutes / color / Zulu with English subtitles / A film by Coenie Dippenaar
