Based on an autobiographical novel by Andre Carl van der Merwe, Moffie follows the coming-of-age of a gay teenager conscripted into the SADF in 1981. Nicholas is stationed on the border with Angola, where his unit awaits deployment against the “black communist threat”. When sparks fly between himself and another young recruit, the possibility of exposure threatens both with brutal humiliation and violence.
Nominated for Best Film at the 2019 London Film Festival and for a further two awards at the 2019 Venice Film Festival, Moffie is directed by Oliver Hermanus and stars Kai Luke Brummer, Ryan de Villiers, Hilton Pelser and Matthew Vey.
