Winner of the Best South African Feature Film at
the 37th Durban International Film Festival in 2013.
(SA 2013, 94 mins, 0-16SLV)
A killer romance.
Inspired by a true story, this is a road movie that follows a police investigation into four murders & charts the doomed romance of outlaw lovers.
A noir romance from writer/director Andrew Worsdale, starring Brandon Auret, Cara Roberts, Gys de Villiers, Marcel van Heerden, Danny Keogh & Frank Opperman.
With songs by Jim Neversink.
“Bonnie & Clyde without Hollywood’s Tricks” - “Durban Poison”, a sensation at the Durban Film Festival, is as South African as a bag of dagga (cannabis) behind the police station.”
LEON VAN NIEROP
“Worsdale uses a blunt knife to penetrate the psyche of his protagonists…the film is as rough and tough as his character’s souls ... Cara Roberts makes a stunning debut (alongside)seasoned and brilliant actors ...
it makes you dazed and wanting more.”
RAPPORT, ARTS & CULTURE 27th July 2013
“A criminal-lovers-on-the-run film that’s beautiful to behold. Durban Poison is a poignant, sometimes darkly comic love story full of regret & compassion.”
