Double feature

Double Feature was made during the later years of Apartheid in South Africa, using handheld video equipment and without budget. Part One features a young, handsome warrior from the Samburu Tribe of Kenya arriving, from smoky forests, among his clansmen. He sets eyes on a village beauty, but suddenly he seems to have a premonition of life in the city and when a helicopter appears from nowhere he willingly jumps aboard and leaves his old life behind - Part Two deals with an European counterpart who makes his way into an abandoned Johannesburg cinema, where he eventually murders his double and walks away, across the waters in a city park, into the sunset.

South African filmmaker Anton Kotze' was tutored by his filmmaker-photographer father from an early age. He has has worked for over twenty years in the feature film and television industry, mostly covering the arts and education.

He started his professional life as a newspaper crime reporter and photographer at the age of nineteen before leading a nomadic life around southern Africa for a number years, during which he was jailed for five months in an African dictator-state under suspicion of being a spy.
