The New Year has kicked off exceptionally well for the South African film industry, with the first three new releases of 2019 still occupying top ten positions for three consecutive weeks now. The local flicks, Matwetwe, Dominee Tienie and Three
Days To Go, are still attracting South Africans to the big screen for some home grown taste among all the Hollywood blockbusters. Another indigenous film, "Liewe Lisa", will join the cinema circuit this Friday. The movie, with Hendrik Cronje, Zane Meas and Elani Dekker in the leads, tells of a simple fisherman who crosses the path of a man who is at a turning point in his life after having illicit affairs with another man's wife and this man's
daughter. About ten new South African movies will hit local screens over the next few months, including, "Sew The Winter to My Skin", "Racheltjie de Beer", "Deep End", "Toorbos", "Die Stropers", as well as the movie, "Die Seemeeu".
