In anticipation of the release of Angus Buchan’s Ordinary People on April 5, 2012, Ster Kinekor Entertainment has opened ticket bookings up to the public for two “sneak-previews” of the film. Capetonians can catch all the action at N1 City on Wednesday 14 March at 8pm, while Joburg film lovers can enjoy the movie at The Zone on Thursday 15 March at 8pm.
The film by FC Hamman includes a stellar cast and breathtaking cinematography. Local talent featured in the film includes Anrich Herbst, Anton Dekker, Kate Normington, Jaco Muller andLucky Koza, to name just a few.
Based on true events, this film is not a biography on Angus Buchan but rather follows three parallel plot lines of ordinary South African men in the build up to their attendance of the Mighty Men Conference 2010.
The local flavour of this film continues with its original score by South Africa composer and musician Mauritz Lotz. The film also includes music by international Christian artist, Michael W. Smith. The crew filmed on locations across South Africa including Johannesburg, Cape Town, Limpopo and Greytown.
“The making of Ordinary People was – and still is – an amazing and life-changing journey. It was a pleasure working with a very dedicated crew and some of our most talented actors. Angus Buchan is an inspiration to me and I am fortunate to call him my personal friend“. – FC Hamman, Director of Angus Buchan’s Ordinary People
With limited tickets available for these sneak previews next week, members of the public are encouraged to secure their seats before they are sold out. Tickets can be purchased onlineHERE from Ster Kinekor Theatre. Movie goers can visit the site, scroll down the coming soon strip, and simply click on “book” to make their reservation in the city of their choice.
The backbone of the story is Angus Buchan – at the 2009 Mighty Men Conference – sharing his simple but rock solid faith with a few hundred thousand men. We experience his on-stage heart attack and the resulting personal insight he received from God regarding his own ministry.
In the vast crowd we find three typical men – all in the process of being touched by the Holy Spirit through Angus’s words. We find André Cloete – a twenty something man who became ensnared in alcohol abuse and a wasted life – due to his broken relationship with his ‘strictly religious’ and absent father.
Then there is John Peters – a middle aged panel beater from Bethlehem who’s
business, family relationships and health have been spiralling down to the brink of collapse.
Lastly we meet Lucky Nzimande – a young, black criminal who naively attempts to hi-jack the vehicle of two ex special-forces policemen en route to the Mighty Men Conference.
The film tells the dramatic story of the three men’s journeys and experiences leading up to the 2010 MMC. Their respective stories are cleverly interwoven with the anointed message and ministry of Angus Buchan.
