On the 22nd of May South Africans will have the opportunity to watch the hilarious untold story of one of the greatest bands that ever lived, who inspired a revolution, yet failed to break through to the mainstream: Stone Cold Jane Austen.
The film features appearances by Rob Van Vuuren, Jon Savage, Fokofopolisiekar, Jack Parow, Die Heuwels Fantasties, Arno Carstens, Randall Abrahams, aKING, Kurt Schoonraad and others and is directed by Jon Savage. The film was shot at Oppikoppi and other locations all around South Africa.
It looks like this is going to be a funny movie, judging by the trailer below:
Not much else is known about this film, but I have a feeling it’s because the makers of this film don’t want to give too much away before it’s released. Stone Cold Jane Austen might just be one of the best SA films of the year, who knows? I don’t know about you guys, but I’m putting this on my “to watch” list…
