DIR: Yolande Botha


An off-beat dark comedy drama about a struggling middle-aged journalist who is hot on the trail of a reclusive surrealist artist, hoping to break his next big story. But after waking up in the middle of nowhere, buried up to his shoulders, with his new chicken friend, Lina, tied to his neck, he realises it may not be as easy as he thought. After getting a lift back into the obscure, little town with a strange father and daughter, he encounters one bizarre thing after another. Not only does it seem like the whole town is in on the artist's secret, it's as if he's entered a whole world of surrealism.


 


The Agency

'The Agency” is an enigmatic tale of the relationship between two brothers bound by fierce loyalty and bitter compromise. Our action takes place on a fateful yet seemingly regular morning when our hero comes to visit his institutionalized brother. As their meeting becomes progressively weird and mysterious, with the brother’s behaviour becoming increasingly erratic, our hero needs to take ever more vigilant steps so as not to disturb the volatile space, which is his brother’s dark and dangerous mind. Our story concludes with a twist of bitter-sweet tragedy when our hero is ultimately forced to make a decision of heart-breaking consequence.
